If your family lived in Texas, you should be continually looking for them at the The Portal to Texas History. The Portal to Texas History is a fabulous FREE website created and maintained by the University of North Texas Libraries. Enjoy the searchable newspaper collections published in large cities and small towns. You will find yearbooks, photographs, maps, personal and community records, bank notes, city directories, county histories, and much, much more. New information is continually added.
There is a lot about my grandparents in the small town newspapers. I found my father's sisters and brother in high school and college year books. And, even a photo of my father when he was stationed aboard the U.S. Adams and heading for Shanghai in 1946.
So, if your family lived in Texas . . .
don't hesitate to check out the Portal to Texas History!!
