In recognition of Texas History Month, Fort Bend County Libraries’ Local History and Genealogy Department will present two online programs in March for local-history buffs.
On Monday, March 15, Carol Beauchamp will present “The Story of the Runaway Scrape.” After word of the fall of the Alamo reached the Texians in 1836, panic ensued and a mass exodus took place in an effort to outrun the approaching Mexican Army. Learn what these early colonists endured as they ran for their lives.
On Monday, March 22, Genealogy and Local History department manager Daniel Sample will present “A History of Booth, TX.” Sample will share a brief history of the community of Booth, Texas, in southeast Fort Bend County. He will also talk about the old Booth school building.
These online, pre-recorded videos can be viewed on the Fort Bend County Libraries website – www.fortbend.lib.tx.us — by clicking on the “Classes and Events” tab and selecting “Virtual Programs,” and then finding the programs on the dates listed.
