Fannin Excellent website that is very informative and easy to navigate
Montgomery Excellent presentation & a lot of information.

San Augustine Suzanne has done a remarkable job in identifying and adding records which are highly reliable and accurate.  I work in counties all over East Texas, and the San Augustine is among the very best out there!
Shelby Very detailed and informative.
Fannin The TXFannin.org site just keeps getting better, with the inclusion of more and more resources.  Webmaster Suzie Henderson has encouraged a sense of "ownership" among those who use it, so little things, as well as big ones, are made available through it.  Congratulations to Suzie - and thank you very much.

Fannin This is a very thorough website, and it is easy to navigate. I learned several details about my family's ancestry from the cemetery listings and the obituaries. No other county website I have visited has offered the information I needed. I was also glad to see the historical markers listed since I also check county websites to locate markers.
Robertson great info

Newton Comment Newton County is the friendliest county in Texas.  The inhabitants are more like a family than a collection of individual entities.  With only 3 major towns, the county is drawn together by one organization, the Newton County Historical Commission and all are represented at the bi-monthly meetings.  The newly completed historic courthouse is one of the oldest and most beautiful in Texas and each year at from Thanksgiving until Christmas people come from all over the U.S. to ride the Christmas train through Caney Creek Park.  In the spring and summer the beautiful wildflowers draw people to the county as well as being on the flyway of the hummingbirds and several species of butterflies.  Year round there is great hunting and fishing since the drought is over in our area.  Toledo Bend Dam is also a great draw for fishermen and vacationers.  I can't think of any place I'd rather live than Newton County

You may notice a message beside the county listing indicating it is available for adoption. This means that we are looking for someone to take it over on a permanent basis. If you would like to adopt a web page for one of these counties, please contact Shirley Cullum, State Coordinator.  The assistant state coordinators are Carla Clifton and Jane Keppler..
