Welcome to Texas Genealogy Trails

 Welcome to the Genealogy Trails website for the State of Texas. 

Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data and placing it online for the free use of all researchers.  

We would very much like to make you part of this project. 
If you have information that you'd like to share about any town, family, county or subject, please send it to us and we'll make sure it gets posted to the right county.  We are looking for Biographies, Obituaries, Newspaper Stories, History and Family stories.
 

If you would like to help us by submitting information we will gladly post it on our websites.

Email Us with your data.

We do not however have time to do research for your families as this State is huge and devours all of our spare time.



Texas is also in need of County Hosts. 
It is our hope that most, if not all, of Texas' counties can have their own hosts, who can transcribe data and upload it to the county's webpage.


The State of Texas is available for adoption by regions. We have separated it into regions in order to make it easier for it to be watched over.
If you're interested in adopting a county or a whole region in Texas - please view our
Volunteer Information Page
(html knowledge and a desire to transcribe data is required).
