I am an archivist and President of OPHGR "Organization for the Preservation of Historical and Genealogical Records). OPHGR is made up of members who travel to courthouses in Texas to transcribe and publish books from some of the old documents that are fading away and trying to preserve some of our history. We have been working at Quitman, Wood County, Texas since 2008 and have published five book which are at the Library of Congress. Also in our list of publications is a book of Heirship Affidavits & Probate Records for Rockwall Co. TX. One of members who moved to San Antonio, TX published the early marriage records (1856-1891) of Bandera Co. TX. We are working on 4 other books to publish in the next year. (2012)

If anyone would like to join us, you can contact me at my email address on the main page. We are waiting on Upshur county to finish scanning their old documents so that we can transcribe some books for the County Clerk in that county.

I also have been doing genealogy since I was a teenager. I had time to visit with my great-grandmothers and grandmothers on my lines and my husband's lines. Below is my website link.

These are some of my family lines which you can find on my personal website along with Robert's family lines:
