Research & Adventure in San Antonio

San Antonio has a variety of facilities to research your ancestors. Two include the San Antonio Genealogical & Historical Society Library and the Texana/Genealogy Department of the San Antonio Central Library.

San Antonio is always on the list of destination cities for many visitors, and 2018 offers even more exciting adventures. As the city of San Antonio celebrates its 300th anniversary this year, it is the perfect venue for TxSGS to host its annual Family History Conference. San Antonio’s rich history as a crossroads of the southwest makes it the perfect spot for genealogists, historians, and hobbyists to share their genealogy passions, learn new research techniques, and explore the fascinating tapestry of history represented by San Antonio. From unique art exhibitions, culinary events, and festivals to family fun at theme parks and exciting openings, 2018 will be a can’t miss year in the Alamo City.

San Antonio was selected as one of the “50 Best Places to Travel in 2018” by Travel + Leisure magazine and was named to National Geographic Traveler’s “2018 Best of the World” list. The city will celebrate all year long with events, activities, and initiatives that will carry San Antonio into the next 300 years.

The three-day TxSGS 2018 Family History Conference is a great opportunity for family historians to advance their research, hone their skills, and network with fellow genealogists. Be sure to reserve your hotel accommodations as soon as possible.
