1790-1930 U.S. Census Arrived

Genealogy Friends procured all the United States Population Censuses on microfilm from 1790-1930, except the New England states.

It is in the process of being put in the new microfilm cabinets located on the left as you enter the Genealogy Library.

They have also given the Collin County Courthouse Records now on microfilm and these should be arriving any day. If you are a Collin County Researcher then you are going to love our library.

Genealogy Friends is happy and excited about the new additions.

Library Learn-ins

Everyone loved the Lock-ins while Genealogy Friends was located at the Gladys Harrington Library, but things change.

1) The Genealogy Library moved a year ago to W. O. Haggard Library, 2501 Coit Road, on the bottom floor.
2) Learn-ins took the place of Lock-ins after the Genealogy Library's hours changed.
3) Wow! Do we have a GENEALOGY LIBRARY now! If you haven't seen it you are really missing a great place to search.

We have another Learn-in scheduled for February to celebrate African American History month. You will want to attend.

Don Hinson shares his research on families who came to America. He analyzes the immigration records as well as immigration through Ellis Island, plus other records that tell the story immigrants. The second lecture is a case study on the research of one branch of Ora Penn’s family. The Learn-in honors African American History month. It is Saturday, February 28 at the W. O. Haggard Genealogy Library, 2501 Coit Road, from 10:30 until 12:30. There is no charge but donations are always welcome. Contact GenFriends@GenealogyFriends.com for more information.

Y'all come.
