The Hopkins County Genealogical Society invites you to their monthly Zoom meeting.
Speaker Robin Cole-Jett is the Red River Historian. For over twenty years, she has researched, documented, and shared the history of the Red River Valley of the Southwest through her website, presentations, books, articles, social media, and even a few TV appearances.
A born Texan with family roots all over the Red River Valley in Louisiana, Robin received her bachelor’s degree at East Texas State University; her Master of Education at the University of North Texas; and her Master of Arts in History from Texas Woman’s University. Robin vacillates her professional life between stints of writing, teaching, road tripping, and museum consulting work. She has made her permanent home in Denton County.
One of the more interesting aspects of genealogy research isn’t necessarily an ancestor’s life records. In a country where most citizens have immigrated or were forcibly moved, discovering the roads, paths, trails, and traces they took can be equally rewarding. In this presentation on “Ye Olde Roads,” Robin will uncover stagecoach routes, emigration trails, and more in the North Texas region.
