Appreciationfor the hundreds of volunters with whom we've been priviledged over the years.
TXGenWeb has several awards that we use to let you know which volunteers have been determined, by their peers, to merit extra applause for their efforts.
The volunteer award is for all of our volunteers from the visitors who contribute their research to the surfers and to the county coordinators and webmasters. It's awarded by coordinators to whomever they deem worthy of special notice.
For the County Coordinators who have been picked by a committee of their peers for things like their longevity with the project, their willingness to participate or the content of their websites.
Service Awards are presented to our County Coordinators each year based on the numbers of years they have dedicated to TXGenWeb. We celebrated 25 years online in 2021 and still have volunteers who started the project!
Our most dedicated all-around volunteers are our "surfers" who visit each website, each month, to evaluate content and ensure that TXGenWeb is providing a network of great county websites. In addition, these volunteers offer suggestions, report problems, and select counties from their regions to compete for the Mike Basham Memorial County of the Month Award.
