The things that have been put on this site have been very helpful to me with my genealogy searching.
Very informative. Lots of hard work and dedication went into this site.; They have helped me the most

One of the best sites that you have

El Paso
El Paso is a wonderful and quaint little town. I was born and partially raised there. I love it and the people there.
I've looked in several Texas Counties and found this one very well done
Theresa Carhart was most helpful and her site is well designed and rather pleasant to view.; Very organized !!!
This is just one of the Lamar County informative, yet private web sites helping genealogy researchers. Deserves award !!!; It was the county I was born in.
Lamb county is a nice and beautiful county.
Easy to find. Didn't have to travel all over the internet to find information. Great pictures of the towns -- Postcards, etc. Took me 2 hours to read what I needed, there was SO much information.
Great site for such a small county.
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!
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.
A great site with a lot of information to look up.
This site finally has something which is beneficial to a researcher. Still lacks Castro specific but seems to be headed very much in the right direction.
I was so pleased to find Concho County and found it to be one of the most interesting and best organized I have been.
I have found so much valuable data at this site location. Annette Burns & Janice Curtis have saved me thousands of dollars in travel, expense and time. The contributors to this site are outstanding.
Lady & girls you have done a GREAT job on this site.; Theresa is doing a wonderful job of keeping this page updated.

Betty Miller is to be commended for all the time and effort spent improving this page in the past months. She deserves a lot of credit for her efforts and I think getting page of the month would be a good reward.

This is in honor of Dimmitt. Where Grandma and Grandpa still reside and where I love coming home to every chance I get.
This is, by far, the best site I have been into on the Genweb project. They furnish so much information freely without sending researcher to numerous other site. Great job!; The best site I have found.; I like the pictorial tour they have on this site. I also like the variety.
