I have caught up the query backlog from when I was ill. Some are on hold and you will have a reply if that’s the case. If you have messaged me and you don’t see a reply please email me and I will look into it.
I am about to be MIA again because I am going back home to see my family and regain some energy (haha) but I hope to dive back into developing the site in May. I really appreciate your patience. I will be able to monitor everything and perhaps do a little work but I won’t have all my hardcopy resources with me which I try to always refer to… they have really, really helped in the past.
If you haven’t been to Family Search lately, I just discovered a nice little surprise… a lot of the original records have been imaged including deeds. I have listed the direct link to the right under “External Swisher County Genealogy Links” for future reference but I have also included it here for your convenience. Another great resource is the Tulia Herald which covers the years 1910 to 1960.

Some of you have asked me in the past how you would go about getting a copy of an obituary listed in the index on this site and I didn’t have a working email or phone number. I have heard from Sally Murrell, director of the Swisher County Museum and Archives so we again have a contact to request copies of obituaries that you see listed in the indexes. She said that you can reach the museum by calling 806-995-2819 Tues-Thurs or mail them at PO Box 445, Tulia, TX, 79088. So anyone who has been waiting for that can do so. Please let me know if you need any assistance.
It’s time for me to verify all the resources and links so I will try to make it flow better as well.
I hope you all stay warm during this (hopefully) last round of winter storms and I will see you in the Spring! Sounds like a long time but it’s just around the corner! Woohoo!
