SAGHS welcomes all who share an interest in family history in West Texas!
|San Angelo, Texas circa 1880s
We invite you to explore our website, and consider becoming a member of our society. SAGHS is a nonprofit organization founded in 1973, designed to promote interest in genealogy and history. It is a society for everyone, from the beginner to the most advanced genealogist.
Story Boards on Display
During the entire month of August, SAGHS is displaying story "boards" created by members. These boards depict a family story, local history or other events. The boards will be on display August 1 through August 31 at the Stephens Central Library downtown. Be sure to stop and take a look when you are in the area or at the library, it's interesting to see how research can turn up amazing family stories! Perhaps allow a little extra time to stop and look the next time you go downtown or to the library! The display cases are located on the main floor, by the Beauregard St. entrance.
