Texas Genealogy Queries

Do you remember the Alamo? If you have relatives from Texas, chances are that they might, or that they can tell you stories that they heard from their relatives. Talking to relatives is one of the best types of Texas genealogy queries you can make because you are going to be getting information that may be first hand, or at least second hand. You will hear tales of the past about things that your ancestors have done that are a part of the history of Texas, and you will get a number of names that you can research and get accurate information about to add to your family tree.

Texas Genealogy Queries - Where to Get Your Information

In addition to talking to various relatives, there are all kinds of ways that you can get information to help you complete your family tree research. One of the best ways is to request a variety of documents from your local state office. These documents include:

  • Marriage Licenses
  • Birth Records
  • Death Records
  • Court Records
  • Census Records

In addition to making Texas genealogy queries through government agencies, there are many other ways that you can go about getting the information you need to make sure that your research is as accurate as possible. Some of the ways that you can learn about your family history include:

  • Newspapers - Obituaries, birth and death records are published in newspapers, and most newspaper offices have archives with papers dating back many decades. There are many newspapers that have been in operation for well over a hundred years, and they will have archives dating back to their first edition. You can get a lot of information from these papers. There may be articles about your ancestors, such as wedding announcements or other items that merited being published, and these can all be used to round out your research.
  • Libraries - If you are unable to get archives from newspaper offices, don't despair because most libraries will have the archives even if the newspapers themselves do not. You can find microfilm with newspapers from all over Texas in local libraries. In addition to newspapers, you can also use the reference and archives sections to find out other pieces of information about your ancestors, including census records, which are available at libraries.
  • Museums - When you are learning about your family history, you are learning a lot about the past, and what better way to learn about history than by visiting local museums. If you had ancestors who fought at the Alamo, you may be able to find information about them at museums, through exhibits and other items. Talk to curators, who are always a gold mine of information.

Creating a family tree that is complete and accurate is a lot of work, but it is work that is very rewarding. Make as many Texas genealogy queries as possible so you can get the information you need to make your research complete. In the end, you will have something that you can be really proud of, and something that is going to benefit future generations.
