To the Heirs of Ballí Spanish Land Grants
Dee Dee King, Certified Genealogist

Dee Dee King, Certified Genealogist, will host a Balli family document collection Saturday, January 31, 1 PM – 4 PM in the Board Room at the Red Roof Inn & Suites.  The hotel is located at I-37 and Nueces Bay Boulevard, 3030 Buffalo Street , Corpus Christi, Texas 78408. See map below for directions.

This is your opportunity to bring your original and certified copies of documents that you do not wish to submit through the mail.  Dee Dee will have a scanner to copy your documents then immediately return them to you. The process should only take about 15-20 minutes per person to scan and identify your documents. This is not a Balli "meeting". Dee Dee is traveling to Corpus to accommodate those people who do not wish to mail their originals.

Balli Agreements will be available.  You may sign up at this event and pay the retainer, or take the Agreement and then submit it and your $150 retainer payment later.  The objective is to collect as many original or certified copies of family historical documents as possible.  If you have originals or certified copies of any births, baptisms, marriages, deaths, wills, deeds, etc., pertaining to any Balli lines, please bring them.  Even if these do not apply to your lines, you may have a document that we need for another family member.

The meeting room is very small and the parking is limited. To avoid congestion, please try to send as many documents as possible with one representative of your family.  Please do not bring children as there is no safe place for them to play.

Also, Dee Dee is working on a communications tool to help us network about missing documents, documents others can share, etc.  In the next few weeks we will announce either a message board type internet tool or a blog. You can watch for updates at:
