Created on 25 Apr 1860, Boyd County was formed from Carter, Greenup, and Lawrence Counties as the 107th of 120 counties formed in the state of Kentucky.
It was named for Linn Boyd of Paducah, former U.S. congressman, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, who died in 1859 soon after being elected lieutenant governor of Kentucky

The county seat is Catlettsburg and its largest municipality is the city of Ashland.

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.
(Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required)
We regret that we are unable to perform personal research for folks.
All data we come across will be added to this site. We thank you for visiting and hope you'll come back again to view the updates we make to this site.

If you would like to be kept informed of our state and county website updates,
subscribe to any or all of our mailing lists
Kentucky is covered under our "Southern" States mailing list.
