Fundamentals of Researching Texas
Texas is a big state with a long and colorful history. The many eras of Texas history present genealogists with a variety of research challenges and opportunities. This primer on Texas research provides the essential techniques for uncovering your Texas ancestors – discover what records are available, where they are located, and how to use them.
Finding Your Ancestors in the Republic of Texas
Researching Republic of Texas ancestors takes creative thinking and ingenuity. This webinar describes the variety of resources available to find your ancestors in pre-1846 Texas. Several case studies show how using a combination of these records can provide a picture of your Republic ancestor.
Researching Texas Land and Property Records
From the beginnings of the Republic, Texas used its vast public lands to lure settlers. While land records primarily prove ownership and transfer of real property, they may provide the evidence needed to prove family relationships. Researching Texas land records can identify husbands and wives, identify parents, siblings, and children, establish relatives and relationships, and locate neighbors and neighborhoods. Learn of the wealth of land resources available to Texas researchers.
Researching Texas Probate and Estate Records
Probate is a process in which every step creates a potentially useful record. From wills to the loose scraps of papers in probate packets, these records can provide you with the information that can help you solve your toughest problems. Identifying heirs and establishing relationships are just the beginning. This webinar provides an overview of the steps in the Texas probate process, including an examination of the various documents that may be found.
Researching Texas Vital Records and Their Substitutes
Births and deaths are critical events in our ancestors’ lives; however, we often find no official vital records exist. This presentation shows a variety of alternatives – some obvious, some obscure – you can use to identify birth and death events. It will stimulate your creativity to search for all of the various ways you can determine the births and deaths of your ancestors when no vital records exist.
