New England Historic Genealogical Society is coming to Houston, Texas! Many Texans can trace their roots back to early New England. Following the end of the Revolutionary War, approximately 25 percent of the eastern population left settled lands and headed West. Thousands of those families would eventually settle Texas in the 19th century. Join Chief Genealogist David Allen Lambert for a full-day seminar on how to trace your early New England ancestors. Discover essential resources for 17th-c. New England research, find out how your early American ancestors made a living, learn how to research your patriot ancestors, and more.
Beyond lectures you will have the opportunity to chat with our genealogists and visiting staff, enter to win door prizes, browse select publications, take advantage of NEHGS membership specials, and enjoy a meal and special reception with fellow family historians. Further your study of genealogy with the experts in family history!
