Washington 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 site 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.

A Little Bit of History
Washington County was officially created by an act of the 9th Territorial Legislature on February 20, 1879. For many years preceding, this area was already contributing to the historical drama of the “Old West.” In the decades that followed, Washington County gave much to the agricultural and economic growth of Idaho. William Allison, of the Upper Valley (later named Salubria) and Thomas Gray of Gray Creek, Indian Valley, were of the Ada County lower house delegation in the legislature, and were the fathers of the act creating Washington County.

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!
