Welcome to the Austin County, TXGenWeb Project site!  My name is Jane Keppler and I am the County Coordinator for Austin County.  If you have an interest in helping to maintain this site, please email me.  I am looking for volunteers.

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 the me.   If you have questions, suggestions or comments, please feel free to email me anytime.

PLEASE NOTE:   I do not live in Austin County and cannot do research.

NOTE:  I only do transcribing and helping people with genealogical research.  I have nothing to do with the cemetery, so if you are looking for information on purchasing plots or rules and regulations of the cemetery, contact the caretaker or a local funeral home.
