Go to the Denton Co, TX GenWeb site, someone has typed the 1850 census for Denton Co, TX. And, there are volunteers listed, to do lookups, for many of the other census years. Look for, and click on, volunteers on the list to the left side of the home page.

This is the URL for the TX GenWeb, scroll down to Texas County Index, click on "D", then find and click on Denton.

If you haven't used GenWeb sites, you are in for a treat. They are manned by volunteers, so vary greatly in format and info included. Many have a list of volunteers to do lookups, all have a query section, and some are getting their cemeteries online, plus a few have added other records, too.

TX is a state with lots of good “stuff”, click and look, try “Texas Research Help”, it will lead you to such as: Handbook of TX Online (good for those TX towns not on maps, early settlers, history etc); Confederate Museum (all Rebs); TX Ranger Museum (both museums have records); TX Confederate Pension Idx Online (different then Museum); TX State Library & Archives etc etc.

When you finish with ALL of TX, see very first option on that site – USGenWeb Project – click and you are at the U.S. level, from there you can choose any state, and county/counties within those states – you are off and running, again.

Many of these sites are in a constant state of growing, so you need to check back on a regular basis. Occasionally a site will get a new webmaster/webmistress and they will get all gung ho, adding new items which you won't want to miss.
