Wood No comment, nomination only.
Fannin Never before I have seen such good work on a county. It is viewer friendly, and seems to be very well maintained. Thank you!
Fannin Suzie has taken a very good site, added new levels of organization, pulled in lots of volunteers, and has produced a dynamic site that is worth viewing over and over.
Fannin Suzie Henderson has gone above and beyond researching, gathering, and sharing information. Her work on documenting the cemeteries of the county with photos, obits, and death certificates is outstanding.
Llano I have dealt with volunteers from this county and they are extremely helpful with anything I ask from them. They always respond quickly with good explanation of available records and provide records if available.
Fannin Unbelievably awesome work has been done on this site!! It don't git better'n this. Suzie Henderson is one indefatiguable go-to coordinator.

Fannin I love the new look. It is easy to use and provides so much information. I can email the webmaster and get help with so many questions. I live in Seattle Washington and cannot come to the locale so this interaction is very important for my research.

Palo Pinto I really appreciated the number and variety of sources and the layout of the site.
Fannin For the past 5 years I have been researching my family tree. This adventure has taken me to multiple counties in Tennessee, Arkansas, Illinois, California, Colorado, Louisiana, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Texas. Of all the county genealogical web sites that I have visited the new Fannin County Texas web site is by far the best....
Llano I cannot express how much "Deb" has helped me! This should be a "Decade" nomination for her instead of month! I have been looking for this information since the 1970's and on ancestry.com for 3 years! She sent me 85 pages in one packet and 15 others in another. She was prompt, efficient, courteous and without a doubt extremely talented in her field. I am researching my family roots in Llano County and trying to prove that Llano and it's people are GOOD people (no matter what they say in Arizona!) whether in 1880's or 2011! She proved it! Thanks Deb!

Cherokee It's been a long time since I looked on the Cherokee County website, and I'm amazed at the information that I found. I did not find anything on my family, but they have certainly improved their site.

Parker Cemeteries.

Fannin I have been watching this website for years and in the last few months, it is amazing the improvement in the site,the amount of information posted and the ease in getting around the site. I'm glad to be a part of Fannin County
Limestone By far the most user friendly cemetery look-ups of any site on US Genweb.
Red River Lots of good info.
Clay Outstanding site and very good information and best links I have found.
Trinity Susanne Waller does an excellant job of keeping up the Trin/Tx website. She maintains the TC Museum and was instrumental in getting the THS Grant for our Beautiful 1900 Red Brick Courthouse Renovation.
Austin Austin County has the most comprehensive genealogy site of any other county. Joy Neely and her helpers have made studying Austin County history and genealogy lots of fun.

Limestone Have really enjoyed spending hours pouring over this website to find the names of many of my relatives that have passed and also ones I never knew. Not to mention - a lot of friends who have also passed along the way. Love this...great idea

Fannin This is the best site I've been on. If I need info in Fannin Co, Texas I know I can find what I need here. My family research would not be complete with out this site. The cemeteries are wonderful.
Hopkins Lots and lots of information. Thank you to the contributors.
Shelby This is a great site...lots of hard work. Greatly appreciated.
Fannin The work that a relatively small group has done in locating and documenting cemeteries for Fannin County is remarkable. Additionally, while maintaining the website and completing the cemetery project, Suzie Henderson and others go the extra mile to answer questions and to assist folks exploring Fannin County connections.
Guadalupe No comment, nomination only.
Leon Didn't find what I was looking for but really like the concept. Will consider donating information.

Fannin Wonderful site. I've been researching Civil War veterans for several years and have seen many, many, MANY, websites. The Fannin site is, by far, the best I've visited. It is a pleasure to visit; someone should be very proud. Clean, concise, complete. Who could ask for more?
McCulloch The marriages for 1930 - 1939 is so wonderful! I found three relatives marriages dates. I wish all counties had this feature!
Fannie Nice work!
Fannin I believe this should be nominated for County of the month for all the information that is provided for persons that are intersted in the information that is provided for interested person looking for history that are unable to travel to look up the history of their families.
Fannin Probably going to be the "County of the Milennium" at the rate Susie pumps quality information onto it's beautifully reformatted pages.
Austin I have been doing genealogy for 20 years, and do it everyday. I always check the county GenWeb when researching a family. It's sometimes hit or miss, but Austin County has a great website with a ton of information in an easy to use layout. Thanks for all the hard work!
