I regret that I am unable to do personal research.

Cassia County was established February 20, 1879 with its county seat at Albion. The county boundaries were later reduced in 1913 by the creation of Twin Falls and Power counties. The county seat was changed to Burley on November 5, 1918. Named for Cassia Creek, which was named for one of two words: cajeaux, peasant French for raft; or James John Cazier, member of the LDS Church and of the Mormon Battalion, later a colorful captain of an emigrant train, whose name was corrupted to cassia. Locally it is also believed that the name is derived from the name of a plant.

Submit Cemetery Information
A wonderful source of genealogical information that is very useful are cemetery headstones. They provide key data such as dates of birth, marriage information and dates of death. To submit headstone information please click here.


Submit Obituary Information
Obituaries are one of the most important tools used by researchers in tracing their family roots. Please consider contributing any obituary information that you may have by submitting them here and filling out the transmittal form.
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!
