Saturday, Aug. 4 – 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Tejano Genealogy Society of Austin monthly meet up. The Tejano Genealogy Society of Austin was first established in 1977 with the purpose to foster excellence in genealogy through educational programs and projects that preserve, produce and disseminate knowledge of genealogical or historical value. TGSA preserves Tejano and Mexican-American heritage by assisting with genealogical research; promoting authors who write about Hispanic history; promoting awareness of Hispanic history in schools and in our communities; facilitating learning by hosting and attending genealogy conferences, historical events, arranging for speakers and presentations; and continuing to promote the awareness of the Tejano Monument on the grounds of the State Capitol as a symbol of Hispanic contributions to the State of Texas.
Saturday, Aug. 11 – 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sabados en Familia. Join us for a day filled with free art activities. We offer a variety of classes throughout the day, each geared toward either Pre-K, youth (5-12), and teens/adults so the whole family can spend the day in an enriching cultural experience. Classes will be offered at 10 and 11 a.m. with free lunch at noon.
