Our website has grown a lot, thanks to so many of you who have contributed material and photographs.  I am always looking for more so please contact me if you are interested in donating your time and/or materials.  At the moment, we could use some help to complete transcribing the cemeteries.   If you have any questions or suggestions that you feel would improve the site, I would love to hear from you.   

With regard to your personal research, although I am not able to commit to doing on-site research for you, please write to me as I might have ideas or materials that would assist you. 

I welcome your e-mails.

TXGenWeb Mike Basham Memorial - County of the Month Award
This site shows past recipients of this award and allows you to nominate a county.

If the information on a Texas county site has been helpful to you and makes you want to "go back" and look again, please  take time to nominate that county for the "County of the Month Award".  You will need to copy and paste the appropriate URL.   Everyone feels good when they know they are "making a difference", and a vote from you lets county coordinators know they are headed in the right direction.  Thanks.
