Census Project Help

The Robertson County TXGenWeb website is loaded with historical and genealogical information relating to the county and its residents. This information is available free-of-charge, 24/7 to anyone with a computer and Internet access. The good Lord willing and the creek don't rise, this website will remain a valuable free public resource in the years ahead.

This website is NOT funded by any government, corporate, or public interest entity. It is totally dependent upon volunteer efforts and volunteer contributions. All of the information on this site is here courtesy of volunteers who have contributed considerable time and money to bring resources online. But, there is only so much a limited number of hard-working volunteers can accomplish by themselves. Your financial support is needed to help this public service effort realize its full potential.

A high priority is to place all available U.S. Census records online. To this end, the Robertson County Historical Commission's Census Project seeks financial contributions from public-spirited county residents and friends. All money collected will go directly towards placing additional materials online.

One volunteer purchased the 1850, 1860, 1870, & 1880 census records; the Robertson County Historical Commission purchased the 1890 Veterans & 1900 census records. Three more census years - 1910, 1920, & 1930 - need to be purchased and placed online. Having these census years online will greatly assist local residents, genealogists, educators, historians, researchers, reporters, students, and others with an interest in Robertson County's rich cultural heritage.

Census Project Funding Goal: $840
Total Census Project Online Contributions To Date: $5
Immediate Fund Raising Need: $835

The Robertson County TXGenWeb site consistently garners rave reviews from people who have visited the site and benefited from its easy-to-use information. Contributing to the Census Project is a great way to: express your appreciation for what volunteers have accomplished so far; show your support for what volunteers are doing; contribute to a worthy cause; & actively participate in bringing additional materials online.

Purchase a complete census year (1910 - $280; 1920 - $280; 1930 - $280) or contribute towards a year of importance to your family. Individual contributions of any size ($5, $10, $25, or $50+) are greatly appreciated. All contributions will be posted on the Robertson County Historical Commission's online List Of Contributors (unless you wish to make an anonymous contribution).
