Welcome to Geneva County, Alabama

Alabama Genealogy Trails


"Constitution Oak"
Geneva County is home to a historical oak tree, often referred to as Constitution Oak, Big Oak, and Ole Oak. It is thought to be one of the oldest and largest live oak trees in the state. This magnificent testament to the historical roots of this southern gem is believed to have been a meeting place when the town of Geneva was first settled.

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. 

 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.
