How to Create a Community History

Where do you come from? It is a question I am sure you have been asked a number of times in your life. Did your ancestors settle many decades or a possibly over a century ago in what is now Jasper Texas? Are you from one of the many towns and rural communities that make up Jasper County? Or did you come to this community in the recent past. Regardless there are questions we are sure your have about the community you come from or this community you now call home.

Sign up for a personalized workshop to help you start the process of creating the history of your community.


We will help you start the process of creating the history of your community. We will support organizing your ongoing research into your community so your children and grand children will be able to tell your story to the generations beyond the 21st century.

While we focus on the African American experience in this workshop we are mindful that this community’s experience can’t be told without the accompanying stories from all communities. So this invitation is to everyone.

If your ancestral memories include a cemetery, a church, a school house or land ownership you have all you will need to take advantage of this workshop. Our goal is to help you preserve your community’s history.
