Comment(s) from nominator

January
Freestone I think this county is amazing! I believe I should be part of it though as I am a Freestone. Freestones rule !!!!!!!!!
Gillespie This County has one of the absolute best sites in the Texas GenWeb community. This site has been invaluable in furthering my research into my German ancestors. I have found gold mines of information here that I can't even locate on ancestry.com. Thank you, thank you, for this wonderful website, and keep up the fabulous work!
Washington Well done! Easy to navigate! Nice collection of information! (I am researching the HENSLEYs who were there before TX was TX, relocating ca. 1818, from TN. The marriage records were very nice to see!) THANKS
Gray I do a lot of look ups for people on familys and your site if for better than any i have seen in the last 5 states .. keep up the good work
Dickens This county has one of the best cemetery sections I have ever seen (anywhere) and it's very helpfull to people out of town.
Freestone Excellent job! I enjoyed the site very much and found it greatly informative.
Dickens I have been a family researcher for many, many years. The Dickens County page is one of the best I have seen in a long time. It is easy to navigate. It has so many of the things that a serious researcher is looking for in their endeavor. It is presented in a staight forward manner and without all the ruffle and frills that I consider distracting but with just enough to make it attractive.
Leon Thank you for preserving my history.
Gonzales Excellent web site.

We have been identify Veterans in our cemeteries & Veterans in other cemeteries, that were born, died, buried or lived in Gillespie County. This project is being done so the future generations will know the members of our community who have served. I use the TXGENWEB project all over the State of Texas and can honestly tell you that these sites are the easiest sites to use. They are filled with information that all visitor can use, and will use.

I have been given information about a family member to be proud of and a place that my mother, Marvel Lee McClary Scott called home.

Falls Kay Cunningham has the best, by far!
Smith The Smith County team has done a fantastic job of acquiring and posting US Census records 1850-1930 and creating an index of names to allow a researcher to select the correct census page for research. The other counties should take this lead and not attempt to transcibe the entire record. Which could take a lifetime.
Garza Found family info, thanks.
September
