Biographical or Historical Information

Carolyn Ericson, her mother Emma Reeves, and Betty Burr attended the Lufkin and San Augustine Genealogical Society meetings regularly in the early 1970s. They recognized the need for such an organization in Nacogdoches, which had a rich history but no existing collections of genealogy materials or space for genealogists to do research. The Nacogdoches Genealogical Society was formally organized September 15, 1975 with two main objectives: 1) to assist people investigating their ancestors and 2) to start a program to transcribe for publication old county court records.


This collection is described in 53 folders and housed in in one banker's box. Folders 34-53 are from the addendum to the collection.
