HELPING YOU FIND YOUR ROOTS!
Have you ever wished that you knew more about your family history, but just did not know where to go? Then this is your day, when you found our site, you found an answer to your wish. We are a group of family oriented people that are willing to help you out. We all are still trying to find our tap roots. We just seem to never be fully satisfied with what we have discovered. Once bitten by the genealogical bug, you can never stop.
The Vernon Historical & Genealogical Society serves the Central Louisiana and East Texas areas by providing a meeting place for people interested in preserving their heritage. We have members, both male and female, of all ages. Our youngest member is now 12 years old she has been involved in family research for 5 years. We encourage people to get their children and grandchildren involved.
We can provide family charts, research forms, and tips. We will help to guide you in your research. We can do local look-ups. We do not charge for our services. It may cost you for copies, or for records at the Clerk of Courts Office and postage. We are not professionals so we can not guarantee the results. We work with what you provide us to work with. We all are working people, so it does take us some time.
A Prayer for Genealogists
Lord, help me dig into the past and sift the sands of time
That I might find the roots that made this of mine.
Lord, help me trace the ancient roads on which my fathers trod
And led them through so many lands to find our present sod.
Lord, help me find an ancient book or dusty manuscript
That's safely hidden now away in some forgotten crypt.
Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts my soul when I can't find
The missing link between some name that ends the same as mine.
