NOTE:  Pat Althaus said she could do lookups for Blanco County because she works part time at the Blanco County Courthouse in Johnson City.  She said she would need general dates, maiden names and general locality of where the person was located.  Her lookups will be limited at the moment because she is in the middle of eye surgery.  It would be best if you only asked for one family at a time.   WQ

Messages from the Historical Commission

In an effort to expand the holdings and resources of the Historical Commission's library, the Blanco County Historical Commission would like to invite anyone with heritage in Blanco County, to submit a copy of their family history to the library. These family histories do not have to be "professionally published" works. They can include small "folder" editions, essays, or family recollections that have been passed down through the family. Copies of any other "collections" that might be of historical or genealogical value such as newspaper clippings, news articles, old photo collections, journals, etc. are also welcomed.
