Texas Genealogical College [TGC] was founded in 2015 as a non-commercial organization dedicated to serving the Texas genealogical and heritage society communities. TGC provides a forum for genealogical, lineage, heritage, and heraldic societies to collaborate and conduct society meetings. It is TGC’s goal to serve as a conduit for each Texas organization to publicize the qualifications for membership in each, and their respective activities. Additionally, TGC holds an annual educational seminar and awards banquet honoring prominent members of the Texas genealogical community.
