Lone Star Family Trails

May 29, 2024

The Archives and Information ervices Division (ARIS) of the Texas Sate Library and Archives Comission preserves documents and important records of Texas.  They have over 200 million pages of archival documents in their collection, but only about 10 million are available digitally.  So, this library becomes a place to visit for genealogists with roots in Texas.  This podcast was produced in front of both a live and a zoom audience, thanks to the help of the Waco-McLennan Library.  Questions were asked by participants at the end of the podcast, and answers provided by Jelain Chubb, The Texas State Archivist and Director of ARIS.

Located in Austin, Texas near the state capital building, individuals can use both the open source reading room and request materials held by the archives.
