Addresses, Volunteers, Resources
This page is a part of the Gregg County, TXGenWeb project and all of the information here is
FREE  for you to use. If you are being charged to view/use any of this  information, please contact Elaine & Etta




On this page you will find a listing of Resources that may be valuable to you in your research of your ancestors in Gregg Co., Texas. You will also find a listing of volunteers and the resources they are willing to check for you.



Because of our desire to comply with the TXGenWeb Policy concerning lookups, we ask that you follow these simple rules when asking for help:

Please put GREGG COUNTY RESOURCE in the subject line of your request to insure the message is not overlooked and/or accidentally deleted.

On the FIRST line of the message please put the name of the resource your are requesting to be checked.

Please LIMIT your request to ONE name and one resource per request.

**When requesting a look-up, please remember that these are VOLUNTEERS. They are not doing this for a living, just in their spare time. PLEASE be as specific as NOT just send a general name and place (such as would you see if John Brown might have been in Gregg Co. in 1880). Please give names, dates, places, etc. and ask for a specific lookup. Please do not ask for multiple lookups at one time. Remember that these folks are doing this out of kindness. Do not expect an answer the same day.....they will do it when they have the available time.**

If you own or have access to Gregg County Resources, and will do "look-ups" please contact Elaine, Etta & Sheila.

Volunteers are needed and valued at this site. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please check out this rootsweb page for volunteers.


These nice folks are helping Sharon & Elaine dig up information for you to use. If you would like to help
(have information to donate, can walk a cemetery, can type, go to the library,
go to the courthouse, etc)
please contact Elaine, Etta & Sheila and get your
name added to our list.

(Be SPECIFIC - this means give exact name, date, type of lookup being requested; Do NOT give the whole family history for Linda to have to wade through to get what she needs. She politely states that if you are not specific with the information, she will no longer be able to do the lookup; only ONE lookup per request; be PATIENT, the library is a busy place and her time for lookups is limited; NO scanned images)

*Please note that a funeral home listing African American underneath it does not mean that it is strickly African American. The same applies for the ones that do not list African American underneath. It simply implies that it mainly serves the African American population or the White population. All races can and do use all of the above listed Funeral Homes.

If anyone knows where any of the following books can be found,

        please contact Elaine, Etta & Sheila.

There is a website for societies, authors and regular genealogist to buy and sell their genealogy books. It has no cost to anyone and is not a commercial site.  Genealogy Classifieds    The place to find new, used, out of print and just plain hard to find Genealogy Books. If you have an old, used genealogy book or publication on your bookshelf and no longer use it then you can make some extra money and help another fellow researcher out by selling it here as well as putting some of the original cost you incurred back into your own pocket for new genealogical books or publications purchases.

The first newspaper in Gregg County was the "News Item" published in 1873, although several other papers date back into the nineteenth century, including the "Gregg County News" at one time published by James S Hogg, Governor of Texas. Other papers were the
"Times Clarion" published by J W Johnson, the "Longview Leader" published by D B Coats and F A Taylor, and the "Gladewater Gazette" published by W C Holloway.

The leading newspaper of East Texas at this time (Note: 1937) is published by Col. Carl Estes of Longview. He publishes two dailies, Longview Morning Journal and The Longview
Daily News. There are also both daily and weekly newspapers at Gladewater and Kilgore.
A labor paper, the Workers Forum, is published by F N Henderson at Gladewater. Amos
Harper owns and publishes The East Texas American, a weekly newspaper, at Greggton.
Jimmie Clifford owns and publishes a weekly newspaper, The Longview Ledger at Longview.
