The three-day TxSGS 2019 Family History Conference promises to be a great opportunity for family historians to advance their research, hone their skills, and network with fellow genealogists. [More Information]
CLF is thrilled to announce that our own, Susan "Sue" Kaufman, manager of Clayton Library, was the much deserved, recent winner of the NGS Filby Award for Genealogical Leadership. Aside from the tremendous honor associated with the award, Sue also received a $1,000 prize. The award was presented to her during Librarians' Day, an event held each year during the conference.
