My name is Veneta McKinney and I will be your Walker County host. Unfortunately I am not from Walker County - I am from the Marion/ Lamar area so my primary resources are very limited.  If you have a love of Walker County history and would like to host this site, please let me know and I can turn it over to you.
 
 I hope to transcribe as much data and get it online as quickly as I can.  If you have anything you wish to share, please don't hesitate to send it in.  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 hope you will consider contributing your Obits, Biographies and Pioneer Family History. Send your contributions to Veneta

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)
 
As you are doing your research, don't forget to check out our national items on the front page of the Genealogy Trails website.  Very interesting reading!   CHECK BACK OFTEN AS WE ARE CONSTANTLY UPDATING

Walker County was established on December 26, 1823, formed from sections of Marion and Tuscaloosa counties. It was named after Senator John Walker, who represented the state of Alabama in the U.S. Senate from 1819 until 1822. Jasper is the county seat, named after Sgt. William Jasper, a Revolutionary War hero.
