County Histories

In the United States, states are generally subdivided into counties and then cities or towns. There are more than 3,000 counties across the United States and some counties were formed from other pre-existing counties. Vital records, land records, tax records, and voting records are some records potentially kept at the county level. Many county histories include the history of the area, the early inhabitants and notable people, early officers and representatives, military service, the geology, roads, and waterways and more. County histories can provide valuable information about our ancestors and the information may include women, for whom records are often more difficult to obtain.
