Thank you!

I need your help in finding my great-aunt's grave in Anderson County. She was married to a Dr. Joe Adams. Her name was Mary Jane Adams born Feb. 7, 1873 in Limestone Co., Texas. The Anderson County TXGenWeb Project provides county information for the researcher. We also do simple lookups in the books that are listed, however, we do not do research. There are many people on the TXANDERS Mail List. This is a good place to find out information about your family. Instructions for getting on the list.
Where can I buy books published by the Anderson County Genealogical Society? The ETGS signed a contract with the Anderson County Genealogical Society prior to their dissolution. Their books and other ETGS books  may be ordered from the ETGS - Publications. We also usually have them for sale at our ETGS meetings.
How can I get back copies of the East Texas Family Records or The Tracings? You may order these copies for $5 each postage paid from the ETGS,  If there is a certain issue you would like brought to the meeting, please notify Mary Beth Rammage. There are some copies that we are out of print.
I would like to employ someone to look up some records for me. Please recommend someone. The East Texas Genealogical Society does not recommend genealogists to do research for a fee. We do provide a list of people who say that they are willing to do research for a fee.
My aunt died November 20, 1950. How can I obtain a copy of her obituary? The Palestine Public Library will look up an obituary for you if you will send the name of the person and the year - preferably the whole date - of when they died. They will also look for specific information as time permits.
My family was in Upshur County. Why doesn't the ETGS cover records in Upshur County? When East Texas Genealogical Society was formed it had people from Anderson, Gregg, Henderson, Rusk, Panola and Smith Counties who joined so those are the counties we cover and publish records in our East Texas Family Records. 
Does the ETGS sponsor all TXGenWeb Projects of the counties covered by the ETGS?  No, they only sponsor Anderson & Smith County - the others are sponsored by individuals.
