NOTE: Pat Althaus said she could do lookups
Blanco County because she works part time at the Blanco County
in Johnson City. She said she would need general dates, maiden
and general locality of where the person was located. Her lookups
be limited at the moment because she is in the middle of eye surgery.
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.
