Welcome to Lincoln County
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 website is available for adoption!
We're looking for folks who share our dedication
to keeping Genealogy free and are interested in helping this project be as successful as we can make it.
If you are interested in joining our group
by hosting one of the available county websites, view our Volunteer Page for further information about us.

DONATE YOUR DATA!
We welcome any information you may wish to provide
for the free research of others.
So, dust off those old scrapbooks you have in your attic, dig out those old newspapers, or anything else you feel
is of interest to this County, and send them our way. We are looking for obituaries, newspaper stories, biographies,
Birth, Death and Marriage records, as well as interesting newspaper tidbits from years gone past - the items YOU
used to put together your family trees. If you have information that you'd like to share with us on the history
of this county and its people, please SEND IT TO US and we'll make sure it gets posted online.
We regret that we are
unable to perform personal research for you.
All data we come across is added
to this site, so please keep checking back!
