HGF May Meeting
Three Sessions: Probate Genealogy, Tax Records, and the Texas State Archives
by Kelvin Meyers
The focus of the May meeting is on Texas but genealogical resources and techniques for other areas will also be identified. The three sessions are:
- Whose Estate Is It Anyway! – A Forensic Genealogist combines new technologies with classic genealogy to determine the rightful heirs to estates
- Tax Records or Why Did Scarlett Make a Dress of Her Mother’s Drapes? – Tax records can reveal a great deal more than whether your ancestor paid his taxes. The ancestor’s age, time of death, social standing in the community, location between decennial censuses, ownership of land, and maybe even his nameless wife might be discovered in the tax records. Learn where to find tax records and how to access them.
- Researching Your Texas Ancestor at home and on Site – Discover which records of Texas ancestors are available online and which are accessible by visiting great sources of Texas research.
