WELCOME TO POPE COUNTY
HISTORY AND GENEALOGY

POPE COUNTY WAS FORMED IN 1816 FROM PORTIONS OF GALLATIN & JOHNSON COUNTIES

My name is Nan Starjak, and as your host for Pope County I'll be posting as much data
as I can to help you research your ancestors.

You can also help others with their genealogy. Please contribute your Pope County obituaries,
cemeteries (whole, partial, or individual burials), births, marriages, deaths, newspaper articles, etc.
Your data may help someone else break down their brick wall.

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'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 and then contact Nancy.
(Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required)
