Summer 2015 Edition of Pegasus Now Available
The Summer, 2015 edition of Pegasus: Journal of the Dallas Genealogical Society has been published. Members can view a PDF version by going to the Resources -> Members Only page. Non-members can read this Preview copy.
Each year the Texas State Genealogical Society presents awards in a number of categories to publications by Partner Societies or individual members. The 2014 TXSGS Award for Category VI, Official Periodicals of Partner Societies, was presented to the Dallas Genealogical Society for its Pegasus journals.
The category is open to Partner Societies. Requirements are that the Journals must be published at least once each year, but could be more than once. A full year’s copy of publications was submitted; these copies will be archived as part of TSGS’s archival collection at the Stephen F. Austin Library.
Judging criteria included binding, design, organization, content, interest, editing and index.
“Pegasus was clearly at the top from the time it was submitted,” stated a committee member. “ If a Partner Society is evaluating starting to publish a journal, they would do well to look at Pegasus as a model.”
Copies can be purchased for $15.
