Austin County Texas

This site is part of the TXGenWeb and USGenWeb projects dedicated to the genealogy and history of Austin County Texas.

Welcome to the Austin County, TXGenWeb Project site!  My name is Jane Keppler and I am the County Coordinator for Austin County.  

If you would like to help out with the website, just a little bit or a whole lot, please speak up. I would like to appoint one or more Assistant County Coordinators. If someone more qualified comes along that would like to take charge, I will be more than happy to step aside. I believe that the website should be managed by someone who has roots here or currently lives in or near the county.  I now have family living in the county and I live not too far away.


While visiting the site I hope that you will find valuable information to aid in your research for families in Austin County.
This site is part of the TXGenWeb Project & USGenWeb Project.  All information on this site is
FREE for your personal use.  If you paid to view any of these pages, please contact me.   If you have questions, suggestions or comments, please feel free to email me. To submit information please email me.
I must thank the previous coordinators, Joy, Steve and Linda for all the hard work and hours they have put into this project.  TXGenWeb needs more volunteers like them so if you are interested contact me.
