Those of you without Instagram may have questions...
What is Instagram? Instagram is a social networking app for sharing photos and videos from a mobile device.
Why Instagram? When users post photos/videos they use #hashtags to help other users discover the photos/videos and each other. These #hashtags attract like-minded Instagram users. Many genealogists, historical societies, libraries, and archives use Instagram. Posts are brief as it's more about the media than the text.
How do I follow SAGHS? From the app on your phone or tablet, use the Search function (looks like a magnifying glass) and type @txsaghs to find us and click “follow” for us to appear in your feed. These steps are not available on a computer.
