My West Texas Family Forum
View and share family research information by Surname; anyone is invited to share information there as it pertains to our ancestors - free registration required.  This may soon take the place of the WordPress site above, as it is organized much better for our needs.


Family Tree at
Rootsweb World Connect

WorldConnect on RootsWeb
(new domain shortcut for our tree)
This is our gedcom information, updated as we have new information added.  This is one of the best ways to view our basic family tree, and several viewing options are available, including individual profiles, pedigree and descendancy information for all persons in the tree.  At this site, just enter the surname of the person you would like to see, and links will appear below the search box to assist you further.

Free access is available for family members that we know or are referred by other family members.  Contact me directly for information on how to get access there.  This is our private compilation site (online vault) for our ancestry research, and it also has many wonderful old pictures, comments, research notes and other helpful and interesting information.  At this time, we have 15 family members that have joined our group at Ancestry, and you are invited to join us there, too.


Recent Ancestry News


Our sympathy goes out to the children and grandchildren of Bobby Eugene Taylor on his passing on Tuesday, October 2.  More information can be seen by family members at our site for now.  He died in Beaumont, Texas, and he was buried in Silsbee, Texas on Friday, October 5.


We had a great Coker/Boyd ancestry meeting on September 8 with Cathy, Winnie, Mickey and Nita!  My most sincere thanks to all of these ladies for traveling here to meet with everyone, and I hope we can all get together and do this again sometime.  What a nice time we had getting to know one another, look at pictures, and trade information, and as always, there was not enough time! 


Taylor Memorial Donations:  If you are a descendant of William Tom Taylor and Nettie Byrom Taylor and would like to contribute a small donation to purchase a marker for the grave of Neoma Jewell Taylor in Post, Texas, please email me and let me know.  Jewell was their first child, and she died at age four of diptheria.  We have located her unmarked grave and hope to get a marker there sometime in 2008.  Any amount, no matter how small, would be most appreciated!  Please send your donation by the end of December 2007.  Thanks!


Kindly let me know if someone in our tree passes away.  We will make that information known here in any way that your family would like, including the sharing of their obituary here.  Please consider adding information for their profile page here as time permits, too.  I will do my best to get their information online as soon as possible, so that family and friends may see it.  My email link is found on the "Feedback" link at left.  I do require independent confirmation of any deaths prior to posting information here, and a quick call to the funeral home will be fine, if you will share that information. 


Come and meet our ancestors, or just take a little trip down memory lane!  Individual profile pages include personal information, links to sites of interest, photographs and links to gedcom information in our Rootsweb tree.
