The territory of Floyd County was so extensive that from it has since been formed the whole of Pike, parts of Clay, Harlan, Perry, Lawrence, Morgan, Breathitt, Letcher, Johnson, Rowan, Boyd, Magoffin, Wolfe, Elliott, and Lee Counties. The county was named in honor of Col. John Floyd.

Online Data

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,

Kentucky is covered under our "Southern" States mailing list.
