Ruth's Genealogy

“I don't know who my grandfather was; I am much more concerned to know what his grandson will be.” -Abraham Lincoln

Kinda hung over today from all of yesterday’s wonderful food! Didn’t do much genealogy today. A little RSS reading…

I did happen upon a couple of city directory listings for my 2GGF, Miles Francis Stanley, from Mineral Wells, Texas in 1909 and 1920. Pretty cool! I found these at The Portal to Texas History:

The Portal is a gateway to Texas history materials. You may discover anything from an ancestor’s picture to a rare historical map. From prehistory to the present day, you can explore unique collections from Texas libraries, museums, archives, historical societies, genealogical societies, and private family collections. The Portal continues to grow as additional partners contribute digital versions of their collections. We hope you’ll return often to discover our latest additions.

If you have Texas ancestors, definitely check out the Portal of Texas History. In addition to city directories, they have old maps, photos, newspapers… all sorts of goodies!
