Researching Texas History

When searching, think about your topic and change your search terms. Don't just search for Texas, you will find materials that are broadly about the state, from all time periods.

Think about what search terms are relevant to your research. Use your class readings to help you find more specific terms, or look at a reference work (like an encyclopedia or handbook) for background information and context.

  • Choose a geographical area/city to research (e.g. Houston, Austin, panhandle, etc.).
  • Choose a specific time period (such as the Civil War era).
  • Choose a specific person or event.
