Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy!


Hello and welcome to the Genealogy Trails website for Daviess County, Missouri. As we believe all data should be without cost, our goal at Genealogy Trails 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 is a continuation of our original, and highly successful, Genealogy Trails Illinois History and Genealogy Project and we are excited about this opportunity to expand into other states. We welcome your feedback and comments, and of course, your data contributions.

We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested in helping this project be as successful as our Illinois websites are. If you think you might be interested in joining our group, view our Volunteer Page for further information and email Nancy.

You are welcome to browse the information on these pages and at the many links provided to garner the data needed to continue your research into your family history. However, Please remember that this information, in many cases, represents years of painstaking research on the part of myself, or the many generous volunteers who have donated their information to this site. You can show your respect for these efforts by not taking things to use on other websites and/or to claim as your own. I thank you in advance for your consideration.

I regret that I am unable to do personal research.
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.

Is situated in the north-western part of the Stat. Surface generally undulating-some portions nearly level-one-half prairie, the remainder hard-wood timber. The county is well watered, and forms a part of the "Grand River Country", so famous for its fertility. The soil is well adapted to farming, grazing, and fruit growing. At the last sale, of what had been returned as "swamp lands" in this county, the competition was so great that considerable of the land sold for $20 per acre, and non for less than $2 50-the average price about $12 per acre. Farmers will make a note of this.
