The Spanish American Genealogical Association, commonly referred to as SAGA, was officially incorporated on May 29, 1987 as a a non-profit corporation. Under the leadership of Dr Clotilde P. Garcia of Corpus Christi, Texas, SAGA was established exclusively for charitable and educational purposes with a focus on gathering and developing Spanish genealogical materials and collections at the Corpus Christi Public Library and to promote Spanish genealogical research.
Since inception, substantial collections and information has been obtained and provided to the Corpus Christi Public Library and to Texas A&M Corpus Christi. Books, journals, and other documents from some of these collections have been developed and provided to genealogists and historians for their research.
Some of these books are currently available for sale from SAGA. .
