Texas Digital Archive Online
This week the Texas State Library and Archives Commission made a portion of the electronic collection of the Texas State Archives searchable online. The new Texas Digital Archive (TDA) has only just launched, and the current online collection is expected to grow significantly over the next few months; anyone looking for documents and records that are not currently available may want to check back later as the searchable collection grows.
Legal researches interested in capital punishment may be interested to know that the State of Texas' execution files are being loaded onto the TDA, and are currently available dating back to 1992. Former Governor Rick Perry's Executive Office records are also already online, as well as those records of the Governor's Commission for Women that were created during his administration.
