Speaker: Judy Ramos
Topic: Introduction to Hispanic Genealogy
Many of Judy's Hispanic ancestors traveled from Spain to present-day Mexico in the 17th century, and many of them settled the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas when it was still called Nueva Espana. Her ancestors moved to the Corpus Christi area in the 19th century. Two of Judy's ancestors received a Spanish land grant to settle the town of San Diego, Texas (outside Corpus Christi) in the late 18th century. Judy has found land grant documents that show that one branch of her family has owned land in the Rio Grande Valley since before the American Revolution; another branch was in present-day El Paso in 1598. Using her personal experiences,
Judy created "Introduction to Hispanic Genealogy" to provide English speakers useful resources and tips to help others in their family history research.

Topic:
What's Been Done: Using Someone Else's Genealogy Research
Many of us as genealogists have inherited research from a relative and we are not always sure whether the content is reliable? What’s the best way to incorporate the research of others into your own research without leading to dead ends, road blocks and unnecessary detours? Here’s a road map on the best way to handle “outside research” and benefit from it as you combine the content with your own research.

Topic:

Frontier Government: Early Tarrant County Courthouses

You’ve seen the stately courthouse that sits on the bluff over the Trinity, but not all know of the history leading up to that building. It wasn’t the first courthouse, nor has Fort Worth always been the county seat of Tarrant County. Learn how the Tarrant County seat came from Birdville to the bluff, and how it evolved from a small wooden structure to the majestic pink granite structure of today.
