Orphan Counties in TXGenWeb

Most Texas counties already have coordinators but some of the coordinators have agreed to sponsor these counties only until another volunteer can be located. You need to know HTML or web design to be a county coordinator. This page includes links to our help pages, which cover page design and building, FAQ and FTP, as well as other helpful information for starting and maintaining a TXGenWeb Project site. We do have a mentoring system in place to help you get started. If you're interested in being a coordinator for any of the counties listed below, please contact the State Coordinator.

Note:

Adopting a county web site is a commitment - many of the people who managed the counties on this list gave up their sites for various reasons that could include not enough time to work on them, sickness or 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 the Surfing Chair for more information.
