My name is Veneta Aldridge McKinney and I am your Lamar County, Alabama host. I do not live in Lamar County, but grew up there. My family moved into the area in the 1830's, so I am interested in all aspects of the history and families of Lamar County.

Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data for the free use of all researchers.   I will try to post as much data online as possible. We gratefully accept contributions of raw data such as census information, marriage, birth, death records, obituaries, county histories, biographies, old newspaper items - anything that would help someone build their family tree!

Jones County was established on February 4, 1867, from Marion County, named for E. P. Jones of Fayette County, with its county seat at Vernon. It was abolished on November 3, 1867. On October 8, 1868, the area was again organized into a county, Sanford County, in honor of H. C. Sanford of Cherokee County.

On February 8, 1877, the county was renamed Lamar in honor of Senator Lucius Quintus Cincinnatus Lamar, member of the United States Senate from Mississippi.

Its county seat is Vernon

Towns and Cities:

* Beaverton * Detroit * Kennedy * Millport * Sulligent * Vernon

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.


If you would like to be kept informed of our state and county website updates, subscribe to any or all of our
mailing lists
Alabama is covered under our "Southern States" mailing list.



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)
