Genealogy Information and Links of Interest

The Genealogy Club meets the fourth Thursday of each month at 1:00 p.m.  Below you will find links to different articles that you might enjoy.  If there are any other articles or websites that are deemed of interest to genealogy they will be posted here.  Check back often.

  • The South Texas Researcher is a bi-monthly publication from the San Antonio Public Library Genealogy Department emailed to the Bulverde/Spring Branch Library.  We have received permission to place this publication on our website for our patrons.

 

Support the Library by making purchases on Amazon.com through this link. For each purchase you make, the Library will receive credits. Fast, easy to use!

Have I read this already?
Info courstesy of Kathryn Sturtz, AALS
Are you at that point where you can't remember if you read a particular title or not?  Do you need a way to list the books you've read in something better than an Excel list or Word document?  Would you like to participate in online book discussions with a group that is interested in similar genres?
There are several online services that will organize your personal reading - what you've read, what's on your wish list and provide social sites for readers.  Most of these services work pretty much the same and are free - except for LibraryThing that will charge you for any list over 200 titles.  You create an account, then add the books, write reviews, rate the titles and share your books with others.  You can also add more than books such as DVDs, computer games and music on some sites. 
 
  • My Library in Google Books -- It's a typical Google service with lots of options.
