Your state host is Gene Phillips
Please send any data submissions to me. I will upload them as soon as possible.

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)

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

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 this county until a permanent host can be found. We are sorry that we can't do any individual research for you, but if your ancestor left a footprint in this county we'll do everything possible to add information to this site that will help you find them


We  need volunteers who will ferret out County History of any kind. People who will find interesting documents to transcribe and email to us. We are looking for  information such as Biographies, Deaths, Births and Marriages and Obituaries and any "raw data" that folks can use to build their family trees.
Email it to us

It was out of Green & Jackson Counties that George County was formed in 1910.  The county received its name from the Mississippi Senator James Zachariah George, who was known as "The Great Commoner of Mississippi".

George County is known as:

  • the Peanut Capital of Mississippi
  • The State of Mississippi's #1 Vegetable Producer
  • The Wholesale Nursery Capital of Mississippi
