This Site is Available for Adoption 

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

If you have a love for history, a desire to help others, and basic web-authoring skills, consider joining us!  If hosting isn't for you, we can use your help in other ways.  Get the details on our Volunteer Page.
[A desire to transcribe data and knowledge of how to make a basic webpage 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.

Coosa County was established on December 18, 1832. The county was formed from parts of Montgomery County and Shelby County. It gained a small portion from Montgomery County in 1837, and lost another to the south upon the creation of Elmore County. Its county seat is Rockford. Its name derives from a town of the Creek tribe.
