Howdy! I am Norman Lewis, the county coordinator for this page. I want to welcome you to our small part of the USGenWeb project and I hope you will find this page informative and helpful. The purpose of this site is to provide an online resource for those looking for genealogical information in Denton County, Texas. I want this site to be as useful and user-friendly as possible, so if you have any suggestions for its improvement, I would love to hear from you. Additionally, if you have a Denton County resource you would like to share or offer to do look-ups in, please let me know and I will add you to our list.

If you have found the USGenWeb pages useful, think about sponsoring a county page yourself. It is not very hard to do and there is a wonderful online community of volunteers, mentors, and coordinators willing to help. To see Texas counties available for adoption, check out the Texas Orphan Counties Page, or go to any of the state USGenWeb pages to view a list of counties they may have available. You can also find links to all of the Texas counties on the TXGenWeb County page.
