A project for those who have family members who go back to the days of Mexican Texas and the Republic of Texas.

Mexican Texas is the name given by Texas history scholars to the period between 1821 and 1836, when Texas was governed by Mexico.

The Republic of Texas was an independent nation in North America, bordering the United States and Mexico, that existed from 1836 to 1846.
