For the first time, Texas individuals will be recognized in the 2016 class of the Texas Genealogical Hall of Fame.
The Texas Genealogical College is seeking nominations of outstanding genealogists, said spokesman Judge Ed Butler. This category of genealogists includes those who have been certified for a specific type of genealogy, those who have served as leaders of lineage societies on a state and national level, librarians who work exclusively in the genealogy department, authors of family history and genealogy books, and those who speak at genealogy seminars.
Up to six nominees can be honored. The deadline for nominations is Sept. 15.
The winners will be announced at a banquet Oct. 21 at the El Tropicano Riverwalk Hotel in San Antonio.
