The Timpson Area Genealogy and Heritage Society (TAGHS) was founded in 1991 and originally met in the Timpson High School Library.   In 2000 TAGHS moved to the Timpson Square and shared a room with the Timpson Chamber of Commerce.  In 2013 TAGHS moved to the new Timpson Public Library where we are currently located.  With each move we have been able to expand our holdings.


TAGHS has published a collection on cemetery books covering the cemeteries in the Timpson area, obituary books, the "Timpson, Texas Area History 1800 - 2002",  "Images of America - AROUND TIMPSON" and our quarterly newsletter "Tap Root".  Beginning with the third issue of "Tap Root" in 2013 it is published in both printed and PDF formats.
