Early Texas Settlers, 1700s-1800s
Out of stock
Ranging from genealogical sketches to compilations of passenger lists, land records, and tax lists, the eight books that make up this Family Archive CD are pre-eminent in the field of Texas genealogy, primarily because they deal with a period of time before Texas achieved statehood. For all its turbulence, pre-statehood Texas attracted thousands of settlers, and nearly 100,000 of them are identified in this CD. Materials drawn on for this compilation include poll lists, military records, vital records, histories, biographies and family histories, land records, and ships’ passenger lists. Although the first federal census of Texas was not taken until 1850, several of the books included on this CD amount to a virtual census of Mexican Texas (“Austin Colony Pioneers”, for example) and the Republic of Texas (“Poll Lists for 1846” and “Character Certificates in the General Land Office”), and offer more genealogical data on pre-statehood Texas than any comparable collection. Many of the original German settlers of Texas are covered as well. System Requirements: You must have a CD-ROM drive, and in order to read the CD you must use either the Family Archive Viewer (version 4.0 or higher), which is available as a free download at www.genealogical.com/content/dlfav6.html, or Family Tree Maker for Windows, version 4.0 or higher (Family Tree Maker software can be ordered from www.FamilyTreeMaker.com).
