Your San Antonio & Bexar County Genealogy "Clues from the News!"

This special section of The Olden Times is dear to me not only because I love San Antonio, but also because I have a personal San Antonio newspaper connection. My father worked for both the San Antonio Light and the Express-News back in the 1960's. I worked there for a year after high school. And my little sister works there today!

The following news articles are about or from San Antonio and Bexar County,  Texas. They are a valuable resource for genealogical and historical research. Each of these was scanned from an original issue of an old newspaper in my personal collection, including 4 issues of the San Antonio Express from 1867. They appear in the order in which they were added to this website.
