Judging Others

7:1 Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, Let me take the speck out of your eye,when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother's eye. (Mattew 7:1-5)

 WE NEED YOU!   SDHP is in need of contributions to help with several project.  You can mail your donations to our address: SDHP 10076 County Rd, 311 Plantersville TX, 77363 (936) 894-3238 We are in need of supporters!!!  None of the great projects by The Seguin Descendants Historical Preservation can happen without dedicated Tejanos / Texans helping us out.

When many people think of Texas history, they think of the states Mexican rule and the Battle of the Alamo.

However, Mexico only ruled over Texas for 12 years, from 1824-1836, and Texas as a province was founded in 1690, under the control of Spain, according to Rudi Rodriguez, president and founder of Texas Tejano, a San Antonio-based organization dedicated to historical research and publications.

In June of 1690, the famous explorer Alarcon came with authority to proclaim this area as a new province of new Spain, and he proclaimed it Tejas, Rodriguez said.The local Indians are shouting Techas, and the Spanish interpret that in writing as Tejas and Texas, as you can use the jota  ( j and the as the same spelling, and that where Texas gets its name.

The "Tejanos In Texas" exhibit focuses on the contributions made by Tejanos during the first 200 years of Texas, long before Texans were remembering the Alamo.

" Let it be Known"

 That we are just people that have the great honor of being descendants to Col. Juan N. Seguin, Had it not been for his belief's.We would not have the Privilege of Honoring his memory. We are not seeking our own recognition. Education is the reason we as descendants seek to promote Col. Juan N. Seguin because of his accomplishments, diligance, and especially his bravery in the many battles in which the colonel fought.

March 2

Texas Independence Day
March 2 in Texas, is Texas Independence Day, but somehow the date, eludes many Texans and Tejanos alike. It's a Texas paid State holiday for all state employees but few if any know the reason why.

In Corpus Christi, radio stations, Television media, civic minded organizations, Independent school system, College or University, city or county government hardly ever observe the day or acknowledge the significance of the day in Texas History.  

Two special local groups are the exception the Clara Driscoll Chapter DRT and Nueces County Historical Commission.  They will host TOAST to TEXAS Independence Day.  Come celebrate Texas Independence Day with a Toast to Texas at the Centennial House 411 North Upper Broadway, Corpus Christi, Texas Wednesday March 2, 2011 1:30 PM.
March 2, 2011 will mark the 175 anniversary, 59 delegates gathered at Washington on the Brazos, in 1836, to sign the Texas Declaration of Independence.  The document declared the citizens of Texas, would be free and independent from the tyrannical government of Mexico. 

It's my privilege to announce that of the 59 delegates two were native Tejanos... Texans.  They were Jose Francisco Ruiz and Jose Antonio Navarro, representing the predominantly Tejano community of San Fernando de Bexar, present day San Antonio, Tejas. They were Texas, Tejano, heroes then and should be remembered Tejano heroes today.
God Bless Texas / Tejas... God Bless all Texans and Tejanos where ever they may be. Today is a great day to be a Tejano / Texan

Scholorship Fund

SDHP is actively Seeking fund for the Senator Juan N. Seguin Scholarship fund anyone interested in helping can contact us @

SDHP will have Several Fund raisers thoughout the year. Funds are for charitable and educational purposes,The funds will help SDHP provide a research scholarship in the future to area students studying Tejano Texas History and preservation of historical artifacts. Support this cause for students of Tejano/Texas History.


There are thousands of Organizations, each with a specific goal. Why should you consider joining ours? If you connect with us, you will be connecting with a part of our Tejano and Texian heritage.

The Seguin Descendants Historical Preservation SDHP desires to educate our youth and bring dignity and purpose to all people. As we build an effective website, this message goes out to a larger audience of people with similar issues.

SDHP is a non profit organization which operates in Harris, and Galveston, and Grimes County. Its primary purpose, but not limited to: Is the promotion of accurate historical information related to our ancestor and other Tejanos who where all native born Tejanos/Texians of spanish Tejas/Texas. As other Tejanos also have been forgotten in Tejas/Texas History, we seek to identify them and, as knowledge becomes available, then share that information with the general public.

SDHP will encourage the advancement of education and research through the use of the Texas Archives and other Genealogical sources. SDHP is registered with the Secretary of State Charter # 800026217 issued on 11/06/01 In addition to research, we seek to help educate our youth by presenting portraits of Col. Juan N. Seguin to School and public Libraries across Texas.

Whatever method we use, our persistent faith in our mission and calling will get this job done. With belief in ourselves, our project, and the love we have for our ancestor, we want to continue this promotion of Col. Juan N. Seguin for Future Generations of Tejanos/ Texians. We stand on our claim to be the original promoters of Col. Juan N Seguin Portrait that we donate to schools and libraries. Further, Angel Seguin Garcia, Founder of the Seguin Descendants Historical Preservation, the fourth great-grand son of the colonel, a fact that can be documented through genealogy.

Our historic organization not only helps to raise funds for charity and education, but also provides scholarships. In the future, SDHP will be helping fund students who are studying Tejano/Texian History and its preservation. We plan to offer a research scholorship. We further seek to help those students in need of school supplies or uniforms. Your support of SDHP keeps all information that is requested free. However grand our plans we cannot do this without help from You who know that education is the key to Success. Through vision, perseverance, dedication, sacrifice,and community service, we will work together for a brighter and bigger future for all Tejano/Texian Children of Texas. Viva Tejas

Our Goal is to show the children that with the proper tools and proper attitude, there is nothing they can't acheive. Through education. dedication, community service and dignity, each of us can contribute to a better life for all.

SDHP feels that the name of Col. Juan N. Seguin should be known as well as other Texas heroes like Gen. Sam Houston, William Travis, Stephen F. Austin, and James Bowie. Col. Seguin was the only Tejano to have fought both at the Alamo and at the Battle of San Jacinto. He was ready to put his life on the line for freedom and victory over a tyrant. He fought for all Tejanos/Texians and we can thank him today for our ability to enjoy the freedom he fought for. Too often in our Texas history some names have been remembered while others who fought as valiantly as those, have been ignored or forgotten. Hopefully this site will be a teaching aid and a learning tool for everyone to understand how the Tejanos played a big part in Texas History.

Education is the reason we have decided to develop this website. It will help promote recognition of Tejanos and their contribution to Tejas/Texas History. SDHP would like to thank everyone who provided us with information. The graphics have been acquired freely for our website.They are in the public domain on the internet, Any similarity to any others content is strictly coincidental. There are those who would think they have all the rights to promote a TRUE TEXAS HERO like our ancestor Col. Juan N. Seguin, they should remember that it has been over 75 years since the Col. Seguin's death, and that means anyone can promote his name. As descendants, we all should seek to promote Col. Juan N. Seguin because of his accomplishments, diligance, and especially his bravery in the many battles in which the colonel fought. We are very honored with all the support that we have been given by so many. Sorry, if I haven't linked your graphics site to our site I will be adding these links later. Again Thanks to all


Monumento De Los Tejanos

On March 9, 2002 SDHP attended the inaguration of the regional fund raiser group. The 77th Legislature authorized the creation of a monument to commemorate the contributions of Tejanos to the Republic of Texas. The privately funded, life-size monument will be located on the State Capital grounds.

Fund Raising committee chairman Dr. Andres Tijerina, introduced the new group at 10:00 a.m Saturday, March 2, at the museo Guadalupe Aztlan, 3004 Bagby in Houston. "We have a great task at hand but I am confident this newly named regional committee will work hard to help raise the funds needed to get this monument built," Tijerina said. Joel Lara was recognized as the Regional Coordinator for the Houston Regional Fund Drive Committee. Several local businesses and numerous organizations attended. I was very impressed with the way that Dr. Tijerina expressed his passion for our Tejanos and their achievements. I believe that we all should support this very unique monument to all our Forfathers who helped settle this Great State. It is our turn to help now. Please do help with whatever you can. This is truly an Historic event. For details Contact Joel Lara at (713) 527-9010.

Send a tax-deductable gift to the Tejano Monument Inc, P.O. Box 2948 Mc Allen Texas, 78502-2948 This is a worthy project, dedicating a Tejano Monument at the Capital in Austin TX, which will be a lasting tribute to the explorers, pioneers, Ranchers and missionaries that settled Texas.

These are my thoughts if I were Col. Juan N. Seguin and this is what I think he would say to his Family

My Beloved great- grandchildren, great-nieces and nephews, this is your ancestor Col. Juan N. Seguin. Join together to educate Texas and all people of the world about your ancestorsand about what we did. I know what I did and it had to be done to make this a better and buitiful place to live and learn. So my family as you go, remember each of you have different talents, different dreams, and different destinations, yet we all have the power to make a new tomorrow. Be proud stand tall. God Bless
