Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data for the free use of all researchers.

We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested in helping this project be as successful as it can be. If you are interested in joining Genealogy Trails, view our
Volunteer Page for further information.
(Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required)

We regret that we are unable to perform personal research for folks.
All data we come across will be added to this site. We thank you for visiting and hope you'll come back again to view the updates we make to this site.

But in the meantime, we hope you will consider contributing your Obits, Biographies
and Pioneer Family History.  Send you contributions to

History
Its name is in honor of William W. Bibb, a Governor of Alabama. The county seat is Centreville and it's a "prohibition" or dry county. Cabela County was established on February 7, 1818, named for the Cahawba River, (now more commonly "Cahaba River"), ultimately from the Choctaw for "water above." In 1820, it was renamed Bibb County.
