Welcome To Trinity County!  

Heart of the Texas Forest Country

The Trinity County Courthouse, built in 1914, is a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark and listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior.  In 2008, the Trinity County Courthouse was awarded a grant through the Texas Historical Commission's Texas Historic Preservation Program for the restoration of this magnificent building.  Visit the site at 162 West First Street in Groveton, Texas.  

Welcome to the Trinity County TXGenWeb site.  My name is Susanne Waller, I serve as the website coordinator on behalf of the Trinity County Historical Commission (TCHC) and I work at the Trinity County Museum/Hensley Genealogical and Historical Research Center located in the county seat of Groveton, Texas.  It is my job to assist people doing genealogy and historical research in Trinity County.  Besides the County Clerk's office, we are your source for researching your ancestors in Trinity County as we hold a wonderful collection of family histories, records and materials that may aid in your family research.  Though I do not do your family research, with specific requests I will be happy to perform lookups at our center's holdings and can help with researching your Trinity County ancestors.  If you are a Trinity County Researcher and wish to contribute genealogical or historical information to our website, or volunteer, please contact me at tchcmuseum@windstream.net.    Our thanks to all those who have contributed to this website!

Most of our early county records were destroyed by two early courthouse fires that occurred in the late 1800's.  County Records (available at the County Clerk's office) include Birth and Death Records commencing in 1903 to present.  Marriage Records commence in 1876 and are current to present (also available at the Hensley Genealogical and Historical Research Center).  Early Probate Records (1876 -1910) are individually indexed in Volumes A-G.  The Probate Index No. 1 commences coverage in 1911 with Volume H and are current to present.  Property Records are indexed commencing from January 1873 to present.  Divorces from 1893.  Be sure to check our Archives page for Indexes and other interesting contributed materials.
