WELCOME TO SHORE ACRES, TEXAS 

 

     Howdy!  Welcome to the Shore Acres, Texas,  Family History and Genealogy web site.  Shore Acres is located in Harris County, approximately 25 miles southeast of Houston on the shores of beautiful Galveston Bay.  This is a Free Access web site, a part of the TXGenWeb and USGenWeb Projects, dedicated to family history and genealogy research.  Currently this site is under development.  If you have any questions,  would like to volunteer, if you have any genealogical or historical books,  manuscripts,  papers, etc.  pertaining to Shore Acres, other resources you would like to share and/or present on this web site, suggestions, cemetery surveys, census transcriptions,  please contact me.  As a very young person I was learning to spell and one of my targets was an early blue neon sign welcoming visitors to Shore Acres (two words).  When the subdivision incorporated the name was changed to Shoreacres (one word).  This web site reflects the original name of the area and its people.  My name is Douglas Anderson and I am the volunteer city coordinator for Shore Acres (Shoreacres).
