TAHS Updates for July 2006

Aug 1, 2006

The goal of the TAHS website is to provide as much
historical, genealogical and local information to those
with an interest or roots in the Tampico, Yorktown, Thomas,
Hume, and Deer Grove areas. I welcome your comments and
contributions. This is a continual work-in-progress, so
please check back often. If you are researching family
history in this area, you may want to post a query on the
Message Board.
http://www.tampicohistoricalsociety.citymax.com/Message_Board.html

We have many helpful “regulars” with expertise in this
area. I will also help in any way I can by checking the
archives at the Tampico Area Historical Society & Museum.
This is all FREE OF CHARGE.

Below is a list of the latest entries posted in July, 2006.
See our "What's New"? page on site for direct links to each
entry.
