I'm a native Texan and would love to be a part of the Texas project.  I'll try to do what I can to help.

I am also a native Texan and have both German and English ancestors who ended up here.  Let's figure it out!
Add me please. Another native Texan here.
I am a native born Texan. Both of my parents are from here as well. I would love to be a member of this project.
Answering instead. :)

Both my parents were from Texas and I have ancestors that were there pre-statehood.  I'm stretched pretty thin with my other project groups so other than doing what I can on my own profiles, I can't take on much else.

Welcome to all the new Texas subproject members!!
Hi A.    

I see you already have your US_history badge.. Great

Welcome to the Texas subproject!!   That was easy?  I will add you to the Texas Project list!!  I am including the link to the Texas page..  We have 254 counties, and you will see a list of space pages already complete, which may stimulate your interest for another page!

thanks for your offer, Mary

I was born and raised in Texas, so most of my relatives (and ancestors) are from Texas. But I'm not real big on history, so I'm not sure how I can help (especially while I'm still working on my own tree/close relatives).
answered by Dennis Wheeler G2G6 Pilot (357k points)
Dennis, just adding your own ancestors helps. You may have the time, information and opportunity to answer a question on g2g because of your knowledge of Texas. You may come across a source that you want to add to our project page or share a profile you are excited about.  

If you just add your own Texas ancestors and make sure they have sources and biographies, that’s all that’s needed. If you need help with that, please feel free to contact us.
thanks for adding me... I'll try to help out where and when I can.
I apologize- I thought I had already added you. I am late on adding several badges and I apologize to all of you who have waited!

This is a fun project!  If you are naturally interested in Texas you will add things. Just keep the project in mind and connect to it so we can enjoy your work!!
I should point out that this project is Mary Richardson’s baby! She is an amazing project coordinator from Texas. I am leader which means I can add the US History badge, but Mary is the expert behind this project!! Thanks, Mary!!

I am a native Texan with three of my grandparent's lines dating back to at least the 1800s (the fourth moved here between 1910 and 1920). Between aunts, uncles, and cousins, the number of my Texas relatives is probably in the thousands. I am interested in Texas history and what part my family played in it.

I have alot of family that came from Texas, mainly farmers and their families. Cartwrights, Bandys, Thompsons, Meadows, just to name a few.  I would be greatly interested in expanding my knowledge of them and the areas they came from.  Mainly from Bandera County is where they settled.

Native Texan with connections to Stephen F Austin registry. I'm fairly new at this but would love to join. I seem to have all branches of ancestors here in Texas from an early time period.

If this is still in progress I would like to join. My father's side of the family has been in Texas for generations as well as my husband's family.  Thank you!

Yes, I am very interested in Texas.  One question, why doesn't Texas have its' own Badge, we did after all have six (6) Flags over Texas and we are still way different than any other state.  :)

Ooops, I read in one of the older posts that Texas was a sub-project...Texas is sooo big, I think we should have a Texas Project and break the State down into sub-projects....

All teasing aside, I would love to work on Texas!

Here is Texas:

I don't know if I love Texas. But my Tennessee ancestors went to help Texas in War and stayed, so I'm interested in digging farther.!
