This Site is Available for Adoption

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)

Baker County was established on December 30, 1868, named for Alfred Baker, with its county seat at Grantville. In 1874, the county was renamed Chilton County, in honor of William Parish Chilton, Sr. (1810-1871) who was a lawyer who became Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court and later represented Montgomery County in the Congress of the Confederate States of America. On February 4, 1861, Wm. Chilton gaveled the Confederacy into existence, as acting leader of the Provisional Congress. In 1942, the U.S. Navy commissioned a new vessel the USS Chilton in honor of Chilton County.
