From Our President, Dorothy Becknell
May, 2015
We will relocate on the NSUBA Campus in Broken Arrow, OK
(East 101st) 3100 S. New Orleans
(Creek Turnpike Exit: New Orleans)
Due to:
  • the ever-increasing expenses of renting space required for the Research Materials
  • the difficulty for visitors and potential society members in locating the library
  • the dwindling participation of family researchers utilizing the library holdings
  • various safety issues of our patrons at our present location
  • and our recent bout with Oklahoma weather threatening considerable risk to our materials,
the TGS Board of Directors has decided our present site at Briar Village Shopping Center is not conducive to attracting new patrons.

NSUBAlibWe are extremely excited that North Eastern State University in Broken Arrow has offered space for the TGS holdings. NSUBA is a State Sponsored facility and assures an open-door to the community use of the resources housed there. Library Computers are available to allow research online along with computer carrels and WIFI are available for individuals who bring their personal laptops/tablets. There are plenty of parking spaces in the lighted parking lots. NSUBA also has a computer lab which we can scheduled for TGS classes and/or workshops.

As of May 10th, TGS Library at Briar Village will be closed to the public and TGS membership  in regards to research until further notice. This is to allow Society members time to prepare for the transfer of our holdings and NSUBA time to set up the materials after arriving at the campus. We will be moving as much of the TGS library as the NSUBA space will accomodate. As the books are packed, they will be boxed and labeled to make it easier for NSUBA to put in place.
Our first consideration is to provide a viable research library containing as many materials, reference books, and biographies to NSUBA. We will be transferring these materials to the campus early July. A list of the NSUBA hours and other important information will be published as soon as the library is in place and ready to reopen for research.

As for Tulsa Genealogical Society General Meetings and Events, we will continue to use our present facility at 31st & Mingo, Briar Village Shopping Center until August, 2015.

There will be much more information as our planning progresses during the summer months. So keep an eye on this website! Questions? Please get in touch with Dorothy.
