Research Opportunities during FGS 2014

From the desk of 
Sandra Crowley

Here is some information about Research site in San Antonio during the conference and their hours. I'll try to send some information at least once a week on some of the workshops, presenters and special events. 

The San Antonio Genealogical and Historical Society library will have extended hours during the conference. I've also attached a JPG of the library.


San Antonio Research Opportunities during FGS 2014
The Federation of Genealogical Societies 2014 Conference, “Gone to Texas,” will be held in San Antonio, August 27-30.  In addition to an extensive program that includes sessions on records, methodology and researching in Texas and neighboring states, you can take advantage of some of the research facilities in San Antonio. Here are two of the best:

Visit this research facility at 600 Soledad St. in downtown San Antonio.
·         The San Antonio Genealogical & Historical Society Library, located at 911 Melissa Dr. in north-central San Antonio, houses a vast collection of books, periodicals, maps, vertical files, microfilm, and family history volumes for San Antonio, Bexar County, and all 50 states.
