Webmasters and List owners
This site includes links to pages that cover FAQ, ways to FTP, and mailmerge,
as well as other helpful information. Most of the Texas Counties have coordinators,
however some of these coordinators have agreed
to sponsor these counties
only until another volunteer can be located.
You have to know html or web design
to be a county coordinator.
There are several links to the left which will give
you an idea of the
requirements for a USGenWeb Project site and other help for
starting and maintaining a TXGenWeb Project site. We do have a
system in place to help you get started.
If you are interested in being a
coordinator for any of the counties listed below,
please contact the State
Coordinator, Rob Yoder.

Volunteering to adopt a county web site is taken as a commitment. Many of the
people on this list are giving up their sites for various reasons that
could include
not enough time to work on them, sickness and personal tragedy.
I would love to
have you volunteer! However, please do not volunteer if you do
not feel that you
will be able to update the county within two weeks. Thank you!

Other Volunteer Opportunities

Don't want to spend the time supporting a web site, but still want to help out?
Consider volunteering for the Surfing Committee. We frequently need Regional
Surfers and alternates in times of
emergency and would love to have additional
eyes with
great ideas helping us out. You will only need to help out once a month,
for approximately 4 hours. Please contact Rob Yoder for more information.


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 Rob Yoder, State Coordinator.  The assistant state coordinators are Carla Clifton , Jane Keppler,and Bunny Freeman
