This Site is Available for Adoption
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
We'll be doing the best we can to create a website that you will find
helpful, useful and meaningful as you trace the trails of your ancestors through Amite County until a permanent
host can be found. We are sorry that we can't do any individual research for you but we'll do everything possible
to add information to this site that will help.
If you can't be a County Host that's okay, you can still be
a great deal of help. We need volunteers who will ferret out Amite County History of any kind. People who will
find interesting documents to transcribe and email to us. We are looking for the "raw data" information
such as Biographies, Deaths, Births and Marriages and Obituaries. There will be the native Indian history of the
area that will be of interest to a lot of people, as well as the Pioneer Families of the county.
Formed on February 24,
1809 and located in the Natchez District, Amite County was named after the river that runs through the county.
The river was given the name Amite from the French word "amiti", meaning "friendliness"
Liberty is the county seat of Amite.
