Hello and welcome to the Genealogy Trails website for Lowndes County, Georgia.

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

Lowndes (pronounced Lounds) was created December 23, 1825. The county seat is Valdosta. The county was named for William Jones Lowndes, whose father, Rawlins Lowndes, had been a Revolutionary War leader from South Carolina.

The county is a major commercial, educational, and manufacturing center of south Georgia with considerable forest products including pulpwood and naval stores, such as turpentine and rosin. Part of Grand Bay, a 13,000-acre swamp is located in Lowndes County.
