History and Genealogy
Bannock County, Idaho

Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy

This website is part of the Genealogy Trails family and 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.

This county needs a dedicated host to make this site the best that it can be!
If you think that you may be interested in volunteering to host this site or any of the other sites we have available, or to join our Genealogy Trails Transcription Team, please view our Volunteer Information Page.
(A desire to transcribe data and the know-how to make a basic webpage is required)

Feel free to email us with any and all contributions that you may have - every little bit helps someone!

I regret that I am unable to do personal research.

Bannock County

Bannock County was established March 6, 1893 from part of Bingham county, with its county seat at Pocatello. Named for the Bannock Indians, the first inhabitants of the area, whose name was spelled Bannock by early settlers.

Please include your email address should we have any questions.

As your Idaho State Coordinator, I try to post as much source data online as possible in order to make it freely available to all researchers. We gratefully accept contributions of raw data such as  marriage/birth/death records, obituaries, county histories, biographies, old newspaper items, census information, - anything that would help someone build their family tree! Feel free to email me, Sandra Davis, with your contributions - every little bit helps someone!
