      Clayton Library Friends of Houston, Texas warmly invites everyone to their next General Meeting on Saturday, May 11, 2013 at 10:15 am during which there will be a presentation by Teri E. Flack of Austin. She will be speaking about "Fundamentals of Researching Texas."
      Teri Flack, who is a 6th generation Texan, is a genealogist and consulting historian. She has been researching her family history for over 30 years. She also chairs the Texas State Genealogical Society's Records Preservation and Access Committee, and she is also the state liaison to the national Records Preservation and Access Committee. She serves as treasurer for the Austin Genealogical Society, and was recently appointed to the Travis County Historical Commission. Flack is also a volunteer at the Texas State Archives working on a project to preserve and make accessible to the public over 1,000 volumes and 300 cubic feet of Galveston County records from the 19th and 20th centuries.
      Teri Flack recently retired as Deputy Commissioner of Higher Education and Special Advisor to the Commissioner of Higher Education - after working for over 26 years for the State of Texas. She holds two degrees - B S in Education and MBA. After returning to school in the Fall of 2010, she recently graduated from Texas State University in San Marcos with a Master's degree in History with a concentration in Public History.
      The General Meeting of the Clayton Library Friends will be held at Clayton Library located at 5300 Caroline Street which is in Houston’s Museum District close to Herman Park. There are four buildings on the property: the Main Building, which houses the research collection; the Clayton House (an auxiliary collection); the Carriage House and the Guest House which are used for meetings, functions and seminars. When you drive into the parking lot, the Main Building is located to the left while the historic houses are located to the right. The General Meeting will be held in the Clayton Carriage House, which is the smaller building on the right and which is directly adjacent to the parking lot.
      The mission of Clayton Library Friends (CLF) is to enrich the resources and facilities of Clayton Library Center for Genealogical Research, a unit of the Houston Public Library. Clayton Library for Genealogical Research is one of the top 9 genealogical libraries in the United States. In the pursuit of their mission, the officers and directors of Clayton Library Friends, in coordination with the manager of the Clayton Library, organize and direct fundraising projects to support the acquisition of research material for the library, to upgrade library facilities, and to enhance library services. Since Clayton is primarily a family history and genealogical research center, an important part of the Clayton Library Friends' mission is the organization of programs that encourage family history research, provide specialized volunteer services for the library, and educate the public in the use of Clayton Library and its collection.
