Texas Family Histories and Genealogies


This work is a list of books about families who have Texas roots. Most of the approximately 2,500 books are found in the collections of the Library of Congress, the Daughters of the American Revolution Library in Washington, D.C., or the National Genealogical Society Library in Arlington, Virginia. It is interesting to note that very few histories of Texas families were written prior to 1910. For this reason, the authors have added about sixty pages of other books, including county histories and other references to Texas families, that will be helpful to any genealogist researching a Texas family. The authors have also included a list of major Texas libraries with genealogical collections. The books are arranged alphabetically by surname. A bibliography and a full name index are included.
