Crossing the Frontera | 12 PM – 12:30 PM

If your ancestor crossed into the U.S. from Mexico between 1895 and 1957, you may find him or her documented in border crossing records. In this recorded webinar we learn about the content of these records and how they may identify your ancestor’s place of origin.

Historical and Genealogical Resources of the Texas General Land Office (GLO) Archives | 1 PM – 2:15 PM

The Texas GLO Archives houses land grant records, maps and associated documents from the successive governments of Texas – the Crown of Spain, Mexico, the Republic of Texas, and the State of Texas. An archivist from the Texas GLO will speak on these holdings and their value to early Texas genealogical research.
