Welcome to The TXGenWeb site for Castro County, Texas. This site is part of the TXGenWeb project, operated by volunteers and dedicated to putting genealogy research online free to researchers. My name is Rob Yoder and in January 2016 I took on the task as County Coordinator for the Castro County website. I have been with The TXGenWeb Project for more than 17 years now, connected with Tarrant and Ellis Counties. I want to let everyone know that I have no research interest in Castro County and I live some 360 miles away in Fort Worth, Texas. I am sorry, but for those reasons, I will not be of much help with your research. For the very same reason, I am in need of your assistance. Any resource material for the county that you could contribute would be greatly appreciated.

Rob's Email Address

Castro County is located in the western Panhandle on the Texas High Plains. The county was named for Henri Castro, the empresario who was consul general to Paris for the Republic of Texas. Castro county, Texas was created August 21, 1876 from Bexar District and organized in 1891. County seat is Dimmitt.

If you would like to help out with the website, just a little bit or a whole lot, please speak up. I would like to appoint one or more Assistant County Coordinators. If someone more qualified comes along that would like to take charge, I will be more than happy to step aside. I believe that the website should be managed by someone who has roots here or currently lives in or near the county.
