Queen City Texas Family History Center
|This article describes the services and resources available at a Family History Center, a branch facility of the Family History Library.|
The Queen City Texas Family History Center is actually located in Atlanta, Texas, about 6 miles west of the point where Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas meet and serves a large geographic area. The center has a collection of more than 900 microfilms and several hundred microfiche on extended loan. Records from Alabama and Georgia are highlighted, as many of the early residents of this area came from those states.
