This website is dedicated to genealogy research of the early families that settled in and around La Villa de Béxar, which has become the modern city of San Antonio, Bexar Co., Texas.
Our heritage comes from the brave and adventurous men and women who were not only part of the founding of San Antonio de Béxar and the Villa of San Fernando but who fought for Texas Independence in 1836, and eventually for statehood in 1845 as the 28th state taken into the Union.
The reason I created this website is that after more than 20 years of researching my own families history I came to realize that I had a lot of information that needed to be shared with others. I have tried to design this website with that in mind. It’s more about the genealogy than the history, but it is the history that tells a story and makes it interesting. I hope, you find Bexar Genealogy to be a perfect mix of both.
I have tried to organize this website into four distinct eras in early San Antonio history. First is the Presidio Settlers, who arrive in the San Antonio area in the early 1700’s. Second, the Canary Islanders, who came to San Antonio de Béxar on March 9, 1731. Bexareño and Tejano Citizens, those who descended from the first arrivals to the time of the battle of the Alamo and the Texas revolution. The Anglo Texicans that participated in the Texas Revolution and the creation of the Republic of Texas. This web site is primarily focused on these people and their descendants.
