If you have found yourself in the mood to get into your family history work this summer, or even if you are not, July offers some great genealogy programming in Tulsa. The Tulsa City-County Library celebrates its own “Family History Month” in July again this year, with over twenty scheduled programs. I will present three of the programs, and members of the Genealogy Center staff will present nine programs, some of which will involve a mobile computer lab set up right in the Harmon Foundation Meeting Room at the Genealogy Center. In addition Kathy Huber, genealogy librarian, has arranged for several interesting guest speakers, including the return of J. Mark Lowe, a very popular and talented, nationally-recognized Certified Genealogist, who will present five programs during the weekend of July 18 & 19.
I will be presenting:
- Thursday, July 23, 4:00 – 5:00 pm — Oklahoma Settlement: Territorial Homestead and Allotment Records
- Saturday, July 25, 10:30 am – 12:30 pm — Genealogical Resources of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and
- Saturday, July 25, 1:30 – 2:30 pm — Information Overload: Organizing Your Genealogy Records

Kathy Huber, MLS, Genealogy Librarian for the Tulsa City-County Library, will present a mini-workshop for the the Tulsa Genealogical Society on Monday, February 23 at the TGS Library, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. The mini workshop, “Early Oklahoma Records,” will include land run records, marriage records, Indian Territory records, and Native American records.
I had mentioned in an earlier post that Janice Meredith, FTGS was scheduled to present a mini-workshop on 26 January, but on that date Tulsa was hit by icy weather. That event has been re-scheduled for Monday, 20 May. Her topic is, “Tracing Your Ancestor Using Land Records.”
The suggested donation, for either of these fundraisers for the society, is $7.50. TGS is located just east of 31st and Mingo in Tulsa. For a map to the library, or to read more about the Tulsa Genealogical Society, visit their website.
