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

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 Itawamba County until a permanent host can be found..
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.

Founded in 1836, the county was named for the Chickasaw leader Levi Colbert, who was also known as Itawamba. It was originally known for the Tombigbee River, which is named for the Choctaw word for coffin maker and now has been expanded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers into the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway.
The county seat is Fulton.
