Are you a descendant of a family that was here in Texas during the Republic of Texas era, 1836 – 1846? The Daughters of the Republic of Texas (DRT), John Tilley Edwards Chapter, is hosting a free workshop at Longview Public Library on Saturday, January 18th.
The workshop is open to anyone who is interested in researching their Texas ancestry. DRT members will be on hand to offer assistance in finding ancestors who were residents during the Republic of Texas era, and even before. Also included will be information on the goals of DRT, research tips, tools, places, and other topics of interest to avid or casual Texas genealogy buffs.
Anyone with a brave pioneer ancestor who would qualify their descendant for membership in DRT should be especially interested. Membership qualifications will be discussed.
The DRT meeting and workshop will be held in the library’s Moeschle Room and will begin at 1:30pm.
