Meetings

The Tip O' Texas Genealogical Society will meet the 3rd and 4th Thursday of the month except for December.

Our workshop this Thursday, April 24th, is entitled "Genealogy Research Techniques".
Mary Torres will demonstrate various research techniques and provide tips for improving internet search results.
She will include Familysearch.org, ancestry.com and google.com.  Many of us do a great deal of our research on-line and this workshop will be an invaluable resource.  The workshop will be held at the Harlingen Public Library at 10:15 am on Thursday the 24th of April.
All are welcome and there is no charge.
