Texas History and
To The Past Projects
to Texas, Trails To The Past, a member of TrailsToThePast.org.
We are Charlie (State
Administrator) and Linda
(Assistant State Administrator).
purpose is to provide a site dedicated to
Texas history and genealogy by focusing on Texas families.
Similar sites seem to focus on collecting data like
census, cemeteries, wills, military records, etc. This is excellant,
this approach the site could have information on the same person in
multiple places. Our goal is to provide family group pages (FGP) that
will link all of these pages in one location. For example, John Doe has
a family group page which contains information from census data, his
tombstone, his will, and a biography. With our approach, the FGP would
contain links to each of these sources. Plus each source (if part of
this site) will have a link to the FGP. Our hope is that this will make
researching our site easier for our visitors.
This site is
dedicated to those who have been part of Texas History and Genealogy.
This will include people who have never lived in Texas, but their
ancestors or descendants lived / married / died here. A couple of
is no limits on the number of generations of "Non-Texans" that can be
listed on the website because they all have ties to Texas. Again, our
hope is to make researching our site easier for our visitors.
wife's great-great-grandfather came to Texas in the 1880's. His father
was born in Virginia and died in Tennessee.
great-great-grandfather was born in Georgia and died in Arkansas. His
brother moved to Texas in the 1860's.
this site, there may not be specific sites for each county.
There are a
few counties that have been adopted. There will be links to those
sites, but the majority of Texas counties will not have specific sites.
There will be data that is county specific such as census data and
cemetery listings. That data will be listed under a county
sub-folder, but will only be accessable from the state page.
bookmark this site and come back for visits. Hopefully, we will
be able to assist your research.
