As you can see, Texas Roots has a new design,
a new address and is hosted at an entirely different location.
Along with these changes also comes a new mission. That
mission is stated in the tagline above...."The Gateway to Your
Texas Ancestry." It is my goal to make Texas Roots your
primary site for research into your Texas ancestral connections.
You'll see a lot of new developments over the
coming months. The developments will focus on helping you
discover and explore your Texas Ancestry. But, you'll also
continue to see the things with which you are familiar.
For example, my Cox Family Genealogy will still be online and so
will the Limestone County, Texas cemetery surveys.
I am reworking the cemetery surveys. As
many of you know, the database began having a corruption problem
several months ago. It seems that the harder I try to fix
the problem, the worse the problem becomes. So, I'm
completely redoing the database and will be posting those
updates as they are completed.
Please bookmark the site and return regularly
to see the progress. And, be sure to sign up for my new
newsletter. In it, you'll get lots of general genealogy
tips, Texas specific tips and regular updates on the status of
developments here at Texas Roots.
Oh, one more thing. Let me make a
comment about the flags above and to your right. Yes,
those are Confederate flags. The Confederate flag flew
over Texas from 1861-1865. There were several different
flag designs of the Confederacy and each of these flags is one
of the actual designs. I'm not making a political
statement with these flags. I'm simply showing a slice of
Texas history. That is, after all, one of the reasons this
Thanks for visiting and...
