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

Claiborne County was formed in 1802, the name deriving from the third Governor of the Mississippi Territory, William C. C. Claiborne. 

Following the original inhabitants of the Choctaw Indians, Petit Gulf was the first noted settlement originated in 1729. 

The county seat is Port Gibson, which was chartered in 1803.
