Tejano Geneology Society Monthly Meet-Up & Invited Speaker Marilyn Galvan, Saturday, August 4, 10am-12pm, Black Box, Free, All Ages

The Tejano Genealogy Society of Austin (TGSA), a 501(C)3 was first established in 1977 as the Sociedad Genealógica de Austin. The purpose of TGSA is to foster excellence in genealogy through educational programs and projects that preserve, produce and disseminate knowledge of genealogical or historical value.

TGSA preserves Tejano and Mexican-American heritage by:
• Assisting with genealogical research
• Promoting authors who write about Hispanic history
• Promoting awareness of Hispanic history in schools and in our communities
• Facilitating learning by hosting and attending genealogy conferences, historical events, arranging for speakers and  presentations
• Continuing to promote the awareness of the Tejano Monument on the grounds of the State Capitol as a symbol of Hispanic contributions to the State of Texas.
