WANTED, Help transcribing books about Texas for http://www.TrailsToThePast.org.
I have several ebooks about Texas (or a particular area of Texas) that I would like to transcribe / format for posting on the Texas county pages at Trails To The Past. All of these books are in the ‘public domain’ (not copyrighted) and were written in the late 1800’s or early 1900’s.
The books contain history about the state, Texas counties and cities as well as biographies (hundreds of them) about those who were instrumental in the formation of Texas as we know it today.
I am currently working on “Types of Successful Men of Texas” by Lewis E Daniell. I have completed a bio on R. M. Page of Tarrant Co., TX (http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~txtarrtp/biographies-p.html) and I am working on a bio about Oran Milo Roberts (17th governor of Texas).
I am looking for volunteers who would like to assist in the transcribing/formatting of these books. No pressure. You can work as much or as little as your schedule permits. If you think you would be interested in helping, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The team at GenealogyTrails.com spends time throughout the year researching and transcribing data for different states. All data that comes in is posted to theappropriate county/state. During the first three weeks of December we arefocusing on Texas (the entire state). I currently host Dallas, Hunt, andLubbock Counties within the state. If anyone would be interested in posting any data related to Texas (or anywhere else for that matter), please forward it to me orto the appropriate county host and we will work to get it posted.GenealogyTrails is dedicated to provided a resource for free genealogy data.
