Organization for the Preservation


Historical and Genealogical Records



Our meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 11:30 a.m. The meetings are held at Canton, Texas; location determined before date.

We are planning visits to courthouses, funeral homes, cemeteries and other locations in the new year of 2018. Come join us if you live in the area of East Texas.


We are accepting old historical documents from Texas counties and other States, old photos with history, and other sources of information such as family stories that you might want to submit for others to view on our web site. If you would like to contribute to OPHGR, please email us at the link below. Join us and become an archivist for your area and OPHGR.


Please email Patsy Vinson for more information & locations.
