Our Speaker will be Kevin Klaus, who has been with the Texas General Land Office Archives and Records Program for the past 15 years. He has searched the early Court of Claims files, German Collection and archival collection to learn more about the history of Texas. He has discovered the amazing collection of personal letters of early soldiers and pioneers who helped settle our great state. During the past few years, he has concentrated his research on the German Collection and the early German settlers that came to Texas under the Adelsverein in the 1840's.  In the process he has honed his skills in searching the records in Germany. Please come  and join us as we hear how he has traced some of his own family.
