States: Texas: Dallas
Under the Rootsweb.com's "Freepages Section" is a complete separate website regarding Dallas County History. The author is Jim Wheat and it is called, "Dallas County Archives by jwhea"'. There are a lot of period records, although sometimes partially listed 'incomplete', but there more information for births, marriages, divorces and deaths listed and a lot for 1880, 1884, 1890, 1900, 1903, 1904, 1908 etc. He gives school history information for teachers, students which I found not only to be historically correct, but other information taken from local area newspapers are given with references. A well known Dallas historian by the name of Tom C Gooch has one of his many columns printed; Mr. Gooch was one of the firstearly newspaper journalists for the now defunct Dallas Times Herald.
To find this, after clicking the icon for "FREEPAGES.rootsweb" , then the letterr "D" for Dallas County Texas Archives by JWheat! Good luck and Happy Hunting!
