The Dallas Public Library is the official repository for the records of the Dallas Genealogical Society. This collection is maintained by the History and Archives Division located on the 7th Floor at the J. Erik Jonnson central library.
The collection was originally donated in 1982 by Margaret Thedford, the president of the Dallas Genealogical Society for that year. Additions have been made to the collection at various times since that year. The material contained in the collection covers the years 1960 through 1992. Most of the collection is comprised of Minutes and Treasurers Records.
As of May, 2017 there are 22 boxes of material in the collection: only 14 are reflected in the online finding guide. The most recent materials appear to be Secretary’s notebooks for 2010-2011.
