About The Real County, TX. USGenWeb Project!


In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Kentucky Comprehensive Genealogy Database Project. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Kentucky, where collected databases would be stored. In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they could be located in the index. In June, as the Kentucky Project was coming to completion, it was decided to create this page for all states. Volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of county pages for each state page.

1996 June/July, Ed Hayden answers the call for volunteers, adopts Texas and becomes the first state coordinator of The TXGenweb Project. He sets a state web site and templates for all county web sites and begins to recruit volunteers to adopt the county projects.
