Welcome to Texas, Trails To The Past, a member of TrailsToThePast.org.

We are Charlie  (State Administrator) and Linda (Assistant State Administrator).  

Our 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, but with 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 examples:
  1. My wife's great-great-grandfather came to Texas in the 1880's. His father was born in Virginia and died in Tennessee.
  2. My great-great-grandfather was born in Georgia and died in Arkansas. His brother moved to Texas  in the 1860's.
There 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.

With 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.

Please bookmark this site and come back for visits. Hopefully, we will be able to assist your research.
