Kenedy I woiuld like to nominate Kenedy county for the innovation of adding a Spanishi version of the site. Ann, the CC, check and saw that most of the residents were hispanic, and made a Spanish version. That is very innovative, just what I like to see! Plus some other CCs are now doing the same thing.
Navarro Looking for family information seems an excellent way of understanding the greater context of our lives, and the dreams and hopes of those whose brought us here. Our ancestors did not just move from place to place, they were pioneers, and that spirit moves us all when established histories and times become challenged. These modern communities of knowledge remind us not to forget that the present is fleeting, the past is permanent, and the future must forget neither. Thank you. Samuel Wistar Johnson III

Washington This website has been extremely helpful to me in the past few months. I have gotten a lot of family information and have linked together several og my GREEN and BAADE lines together because of it. I have also found many living relatives even after my grandmother ran away from home 71 years ago and actually got to sit down and have Thanksgiving dinner with my new found relatives. What a blessing it is to have Albert Hartstack(Ihope I spelled that properly) and the Washington Co., Genealogical society and friends contribute to this website. Thanks again!
Wharton well organized site

Rains Great site for such a small county.
Swisher Swisher County's site has a search feature that saves a lot of time. They have a great collection of photographs, comprehensive cemetery listings, and 2 censuses online. It was a treat to use because I was able to fine so much information. In addition, the Swisher County folks offer a service whereby they will photograph the headstone of you ancestor and they only charge on dollar in order to defray the costs of shipping. I wish all GenWeb sites were this good!
Bell This is one of the most attractive counties in the state of Texas. We have the largest army in the free world, several lakes, many colleges, one of the best hospitals in the world. Also, our people are very friendly and we have a great Sheriff and his deputies. Also, most of our Judges are outstanding. We have some very beautiful homes and a few several hundred acres ranches that are active in cattle, goats and sheep. I am very happy to live in such a wonderful county. We welcome you to come visit our county and also to Belton.
