The Spanish American Genealogical Association, commonly referred to as SAGA, was officially incorporated on May 29, 1987 as a a non-profit corporation. Under the leadership of Dr Clotilde P. Garcia of Corpus Christi, Texas, SAGA was established exclusively for charitable and educational purposes with a focus on gathering and developing Spanish genealogical materials and collections at the Corpus Christi Public Library and to promote Spanish genealogical research.
Since inception, substantial collections and information has been obtained and provided to the Corpus Christi Public Library and to Texas A&M Corpus Christi. Books, journals, and other documents from some of these collections have been developed and provided to genealogists and historians for their research.
Some of these books are currently available for sale from SAGA. .
SAGA is planning to host the 37th Annual Texas State Conference in October of this year. Please check the projects page. Additional details will be added in the very near future.
We celebrated our Spanish heritage with an evening of fine food and entertainment, NOCHE DE AMISTAD, on August 18 at the Bleu Bistro in Corpus Christi. This SAGA fundraiser benefiting our conference budget included a paella dinner, sangria, and Spanish musical entertainment. The Silent Auction also provided guests with the opportunity to buy some fine items and services. Thanks to all members, silent auction donors, and guests who made this a success!
