Funding for the Texana/Genealogy Department was eliminated as part of the City’s FY 2014 adopted budget. The Foundation has been working with Library staff to establish a vision for the department’s future. With appropriate investments of private dollars, the collection can be made more comprehensive and relevant, can be digitized for online viewing and searching, and can be shared through programming and exhibits. The Texana/Genealogy Collection adds value to people’s lives by increasing their understanding and appreciation of their ancestors and the San Antonio region’s past. Our librarians and archivists are specialists in providing high-level reference assistance to scholarly researchers and the general public—something that most museums may not be able to do.
