  • Biography

    John Germann is a retired teacher for whom Houston, Texas has been home since 1950. He is a "history nut." He taught history for over four decades, and he continues to pursue it - reading it, researching it, writing it. He is an avid and active philatelist, with a special interest in collecting the postal history of Texas. Of particular interest are postmarks from those post offices which have come and gone. There are thousands of these discontinued post offices (DPOs) in the state. Most have disappeared from the maps and the scenery, and their postmarks frequently represent the only historical reminder that they ever existed. He also enjoys travel, inside and outside of Texas, eating, watching movies, and just being a retired wastrel - all in the company of his lovely and exceedingly tolerant wife, Caro Ann.

    Research:

    I have published Texas Post Offices By County serially and then on CD-Rom - based on 40 total years of research among the primary sources, histories, and maps at the National Archives, Library of Congress, Texas State Archives, Texas General Land Office, Barker Center for Texas History, Houston Public Library (Texas Room), Clayton Genealogy Library (Houston), American Philatelic Research Library, the Internet, etc. I have also published varied articles and compendia on Texas post offices in journals and magazines, and am a very active member of the Texas Postal History Society.
