Lookup Volunteers 





Sydney Key has "The Childress County Story" and "They Followed the Rails" as well as a listing of Childress County cemeteries and other extensive resources. 

Elaine Farr will do lookups from the 1830 Texas Registry by Mexico.

Neill Marshall will do lookups from; "Memorial and Biographical History Matter of the Lone Star State". Published by The Forrister History Company, 1912. It has over 300 biographical sketches of Texans. If you would like to know if an ancestor is mentioned e-mail Neill.

I have access to Texas Death Certificates from 1903-1976 for $5-$7.
