Mission: The East Texas Genealogical Society works to bring together persons who are researching family history, and to promote fellowship and cooperation among them; to foster, stimulate and share ideas, information, methods and practices in family research, as well as act as a training agency for persons interested in genealogical research. The ETGS also strives to collect, preserve and make available to interested persons material on family history, with special emphasis on research material concerning past and present families in the counties of special interest, such as Anderson, Gregg, Henderson, Panola, Rusk, and Smith. The Society strives to cooperate to the extent practicable with other similar societies and associations which are interested in genealogy and history, and to encourage those officials in charge of public records and genealogical collections to preserve them and make them readily accessible to interested researchers.
