We are celebrating what would’ve been the 82nd Wedding Anniversary of Carl and Bobbie Garrett by publishing the family’s first official history and anthology.
We invite you to be included in this exciting genealogical process by completing the survey below before the December celebration in Texas.
Based on your answers to this survey, we will write your life story. Our goal is that every Garrett descendant has an entry in the anthology.
Once each descendant’s story is written and photos are collected, we will send a page proof for your review. Then, we will copyright, register, and publish the Carl and Bobbie Garrett Family Anthology for your home library, the Sabine County Library, and the Library of Congress.
Start now.
Gather your family and have each descendant age 13 and older complete this survey by Sunday, December 10, 2023. If you have any questions, email Candace.
