Texas Round-UP

We worked hard on getting new data online on as many of our Texas sites as we could. Keep your eye on our sites in the coming days at to view the new data as it gets formatted for online viewing.

I'd like to give a shout-out to our Top 3 G.T. host data contributors:

1) Marla Zwakman- who sent in something for almost every county.
2) Barb Ziegenmeyer- sent in many new vital records
3) Veneta McKinney- for doing all the confederate pensions lists

And bunches of thanks to Therman Kellar, Peggy Thompson and Anna Newell for their MANY contributions as well!

Merry Christmas!

From all of our Genealogy Trails Hosts to family researchers everywhere - 
Merry Christmas!

Wishing everybody "Happy Trails" for the New Year.

"Small Towns"

"The small town rules America, because instead of being a place of hotels, restaurants and amusements, it is a place for normal living — where men walk home to lunch from their place of business and mow their own front lawns and weed their backyard gardens and bid their neighbors across either fence the time of day; where they not only live in today, but remember yesterday and plan for tomorrow; where families and communities retain, cherish and transmit traditions, there beats the heart of America"
(Dodge County, MN "Star", February 08, 1922)
