Who owns this website?

Edward Lynn Williams is the coordinator for the Carrollton-Farmers Branch TXGenWeb site.   He  maintains the website and all information located here. 

Server space and computer time is donated by the Rootsweb organization.

Information posted at the site has been donated by the dozens of volunteers and visitors who just want to share and help others.  In some cases, they will retain copyright to that material.

Carrollton & Farmers Branch are in Dallas County, Texas but the Dallas County TXGenWeb is a separately maintained website.


Can I copy the information posted at the website?

All information can be used for personal research but may not be copied to other websites without permission of the contributor and the site coordinators.  We impose this restriction as we are continuously applying updates and additions as new information is submitted by volunteers.  We do, however, allow other websites to create links to our website as long as they do not charge for access to it.


How accurate is the information at the website?

We strive to provide the most accurate and complete data as possible.  Keep in mind that when using information from this, or any other website, mistakes can, and do, occur.  It is always a good idea to check original source documents whenever possible.  We appreciate all corrections and additions.  Because the information posted comes from a number of different sources, we cannot assume responsibility, legally or otherwise, for its accuracy.


Can I contribute information to the website?

We encourage individuals to contribute information to this WebSite.  Not only will you be helping others to discover their genealogical and historical roots but it is also great way to locate relatives and others researching like surnames.  We are always looking for old articles, obituaries, and other information of historical or genealogical interest to post.  We recognize and credit the contributor of information unless the request is to remain anonymous.


Can you send me my family history?

We wish genealogy was that easy.  While we will do all we can to assist you in your research, you will need to do most of the work.  Sometimes family histories are submitted to this website for posting, so be sure to check the People Index page. 


Why were the death certificates removed ?

The State of Texas has demanded that all genweb sites removed the death certificate images from out sites.  I have copies of the certificate if it is reference as "Death Certificate [onfile]" but they are not on line.  Of course you can jump over to the LDS site and get them there, or some of the pay for sites, since they apparently are not under the jurisdiction of the State of Texas.
