Colorado I have never met with such an informative County Coordinator.  I am a writer and asked that Ms. Albrecht make a change to the County website based on direct information I had to the history of Isaac Toland.  She was very responsive and knowledgeable to the concerns of the matter.  Ms. Albrecht followed up immediately.  Thanks to Ms. Albrecht, I may gain further information on the subject of Isaac Toland. -Tracy Lightner
Brown This is an excellent website.  It loads fast, navigation is easy, great material, and very artistic. Very user friendly.
Nolan I can't believe how much hard work Billie Bennett has put into the Nolan County website!  Everytime I visit the site, I find something new.  She has found several people who have much to contribute to the site and has utilized her services to make sure that information is "out there" for researchers.  I wish ALL the Texas sites (as well as US sites) were this good!  Thanks so much to Billie for her time and effort!; This is a GREAT page for Nolan County Texas and Billie is the BEST

Coleman Very helpful and complete site
Motley This was very helpful for me, and learned thing I did not know. Also I found my uncle's name was not on the Vet list
Colorado I stumbled over this site and have been returning to it to read through the old obits., as they give so much history of the lives and deaths of people in Colorado County. I have found it to be very well organized and maintained and easy to access, and I wish all the counties in Texas had such a wonderful resource. I find the very old obits. especially interesting, since they are almost poetic in the manner in which they describe the life and death of the deceased, and it is a little glimpse of history of the county from way back in the 1880's.; Colorado County TXGenWeb Project has been the most informative genealogy site I have found! An added plus is that the website is so well organized and user-friendly. Ms Albrecht has done an outstanding job and I truly appreciate her dedication and prompt responses to my inquiries and the posting of information I submitted to the Family Group Sheet Project.; COLORADO COUNTY IS AN EXCELLENT SITE WITH GOOD RESOURCE MATERIALS. EXCELLENT COORDINATOR OF THIS SITE! I WAS SO IMPRESSED THAT MY E-MAIL WAS ANSWERED RIGHT AWAY. THIS SITE/AN COORDINATOR DESERVES AN AWARD OF EXCELLENCE!
Henderson Great site...Easy to look at and navigate. One of the best I have seen.; Thank you Bunny and Hollie for your outstanding work with the TXGenWeb Project in Henderson County.. Smith Your on line information is superb! Thank you for the POOL family Wise Nominated, no comments;
Montgomery Great Website !!!!!; Nominated, no comments;
Falls The amount of info on this site is amazing!
Hunt I find that the newspaper project in Hunt Co. is a most valuable asset. I can prepare to go to Hunt Co. and look at the newspaper microfilm in record time. Also if I don't need the obit I have the birth and death dates and relatives through this project.

Wise great job you are doing.
Colorado Very informative site. Well maintained and quick to respond to inquiries.; These people have done a FANTASTIC JOB!!
Collin this is a great area to grow up in
Brown In attempting genealogial research I find Brown County to be one of the most informative sites I have visited. I am trying not to be prejudiced because I am originally from there but it seems quite a few of the county sites are very limited. I was amazed at the Brown Co site leading all the way to the State Library archives etc. The opening page is very inviting with it's "Come on in". There seems to have been a good deal of thought and interest in developing the site and in continuing to keep it growing.
Coryell Fantastic website!
Falls It keeps getting better and better - new postings all the time
Hill This is great.I am so glad Hill county is posting so much information thank you and keep up the great work.
Madisonville Very easy to move around on this site. Found help with my Hall family and Williams family lines.
Ellis Gina Hefferman , who is in charge of the Ellis County Photo Gallery, has done a wonderful job of assembling, organizing, and displaying a delightful array of family pictures as well as places and institutions related to the history of Ellis County. He is gracious and patient in spite of juggling multiple genealogical sites and responsiblities. He deserves recognition for all his hard work.
Henderson My old home town with outstanding people; I have visited several counties of interest to me, and none was as up-to-date and organized as Henderson County
Houston Comprehensive website for genealogy and historical information.
Montgomery I came across Montgomery Co. webb site while search for ifno about Star Co in 1850. I became s"stuck" meandering thru the the site and following the red wiggly curser trail, and enjoyed myself very much!
Leon Excellent work! Easy-to-use & easy-on-the-eyes.

Henderson Nominated no comments; What a wonderful project! Bunny Freeman and other volunteers are doing a great job. As part of the A.H. Meredith family, I am extremely proud of their efforts. I attended the Holland reunion on Saturday and over 100 people (many from the Meredith family), had a chance to meet Bunny and hear stories of loved ones past. We cannot thank you enough for keeping family history alive for all of us.; Great personal touches to the site. Not just facts and data.
Hunt Shirley Cullum is the most Professional County Coordinator I have met on line, the site is excellently maintained.
Madison Living in Ohio, I have toured Texas this summer visiting family and tracing my roots. Madison County library helped me find my great grandparents and our original property. What a gift this has been to me and my military family! I understood why my people settled here after the Civil War; it looked like home, felt like home, and has the friendliest people in Texas. Not only have I found a 91 year old story teller who rememberd my great grandparents, but I have had much help from the Charlotte at the Court House, and the librarian and assistant librarian, here. From breakfast at the drug store soda counter to people at the local Ford dealership who took care of my car so that I could continue my research, I have been taken care of like I was family. Madison County still seems like a home, and I hope to return to those roots after retirement.
Coryell Rich with love
