Welcome ... my name is Linda-Jeanne Dolby and I'm responsible for Dallas County. I do not actually have any rootsin Dallas County, but I live here and my interest in genealogy and the USGenWeb Project in particular, have led me to volunteer my time. Please contact me if you would like to contribute in any way to this project or to adopt one of the towns located within Dallas County to further develop the resources of that town. Any help will be appreciated.

I hope you enjoy your visit and come back soon !

Texas Notes:

  • Was the 28th state; Capital - Austin; Motto - Friendship; Nickname - Lone Star State; Song - Texas, Our Texas; Flower - Bluebonnet; Tree- Pecan; Bird - Mockingbird
  • It is believed the single or lone star is derived from the Bonnie Blue flag that flew over Texas from 1836 to 1839. It was under this flag that the people of Texas fought the Texas Revolution against Mexico. Texas won the war and declared its independence in 1836 and became the Republic of Texas. Texas remained an independent republic until it became a state on December 29, 1845. The color blue stands for loyalty, white for purity and red for bravery.
