Our Mission: To preserve the genealogy
and history of Calhoun Co.,TX
One of our main objectives is to obtain
more research materials for genealogy for the Calhoun Co. Public Library.
CCGS now has a separate area for our genealogy collection which is housed in the Calhoun County Public Library located in Port Lavaca, TX. We have a microfilm reader, with the microfilm of the Port Lavaca papers, a computer, and family files of different families collected from our local paper.
We have created a database which is listed below. It includes information we hav gathered from various sources. The sources we have used are: obits, engagement announcements, marriage announcements, birth announcements, cemetery listings, and courthouse records indicting if a birth, marriage or death certificate existed. We have the database listed below. It is also located at the main library in Port Lavaca, Texas and at the Victoria College Library in Victoria, Texas for anyone who wants to come and use the database. If you find family in the below database, you can contact the CCGS for copies of the material we have on your ancestor. We charge a nominal fee for copies and postage. Please email email@example.com for copies. You may also send a request to the Calhoun County Library to our attention. Their mailing address is: Calhoun County Library 200 W Mahan Port Lavaca, Texas 77979.
Membership: email me for more info at firstname.lastname@example.org We are always looking for new members.
The newspaper database is and probably will be always under contruction. Data is continously being added. The rest of the alphabet will be added as time goes on. If you have any Calhoun County obits, birth records, marriage certificates, and other items of interest you would like to contribute, please email us!
