The Van Zandt County Genealogical Society quarterly "Our Heritage" won first place at the Texas State Genealogy Society meeting in November 2015. What an honor! Then we took third place at the next year's meeting, 2016. Congratulations to Editor Laurie McDonald. She had a magic touch and does a wonderful job of taking articles, abstracts, and other information from many different sources, editing, and bringing it together to form an awarding winning quarterly.

"Our Heritage" has consistently maintained high quality and has won awards for excellence several times in the Texas State Genealogical Society's annual writing awards competition.

Past Issues of "Our Heritage" for 2010 - 2015 are available at the Van Zandt County Library of Genealogy and History. Due to lack of storage space at the Library of Genealogy and Local History, the society no longer has back issues prior to 2010 available for purchase. However, all the quarterly issues from 1985 to 2003 have been placed on a CD which is available for purchase. It has a file by year and one file that has all quarterlies for the 1985 - 2003 time period. They are in PDF format, searchable and you can upload to a mobile device.
