Presentation: Search Vs. Research by Barbara Coakley
1) Texas State Genealogical Society Fall Conference, 10-11 November 2023/ www.txsgs.org
2) The Article from Clayton Library about their periodicals was really helpful. You can sign up to receive other History Research Centers’ eNewsletters here: https://visitor.r20.constantcontact.com/manage/optin?v=001mIqaArBpkIl8N0n2bdrng9wQ8kUGfkUZKPA5TAwbu434rB7O1nPDoH1ZUdx1hZmwiFC_mGn_cTV4WoWhREyFejSRmBH2bE6BwGUCsSEQqy0%3D
Here is a portion of the article:
Our periodicals are both bound and unbound. To find them, you have several options. The most recent copies of our current publications will be in the periodical carousels located on both the first (geographic periodicals) and second (family periodicals) floors. The Houston Public Library catalog (https://catalog.houstonlibrary.org/client/en_US/hou/search/advanced?) will contain location information for some, but not all, of our periodicals and is a good place to start the search. However, the best place to search periodicals is using our Clayton Periodical Database (https://clayton.houstonlibrary.org/periodicals), which is found on our Clayton Research Guide home page (https://houstonlibrary.org/genealogy), and don’t forget you can always ask your friendly Clayton library staff for help!
Periodicals are a rich resource of valuable genealogical and historical information that may not be found anywhere else. The next time you are at Clayton Library, take a few minutes and look through our selection. You may find that missing bit of information to help break down the brick wall in your genealogical research.
3) Looking to enrich what you know about Family History Research. Here are a couple of class options that we have heard good things about from members of our community:
Lone Star College, Academy for Lifelong Learning.
https://www.lonestar.edu/all.htm Check out the listings in their current catalog, and maybe plan ahead for next semester.
National Genealogical Society Courses https://www.ngsgenealogy.org/genealogy-courses/
The Advanced Skills in Genealogy Course is rigorous, but much can be learned even for those who have been at this for a long time.
