    Sent to United from Janella Hendon of Dublin, Texas

    Hello from the Texas General Land Office Archives,

    The Texas General Land Office and Texas State Genealogical Society are partnering together to bring Texas genealogists the very first Genealogypalooza on Saturday, May 17 at the GLO Headquarters in the Stephen F. Austin Building in Austin. The goal of the Genealogypalooza is to bring attention to a broad range of Texas genealogical resources in an open, fun, and practical way that will be accessible to those in attendance, and further cement the Texas General Land Office and Texas State Genealogical Society as partners in Texas genealogy.
