Early Texas Newspaper Abstracts  

1890 - 1930

Marriages, obituaries, deaths, and other genealogy events covering people and places across the entire state of Texas and even other states.  These are collected from Dallas, Irving and Fort Worth, Texas newspapers. You will find many marriages, deaths, obits and happenings in these articles which are not found elsewhere.  These are extracted from 1890 through 1930's newspapers in hopes it will help genealogists find people in Texas during that time when there was not a census available.  I recommend using your browser search feature to search the individual pages.  Warning: These can be addicting to read.
