Genealogy Trails History Group


Our goal at Genealogy Trails is to transcribe and post genealogy and historical data so family researchers can track their ancestors through time throughout the country. We gratefully accept contributions of raw data such as census information, marriage/birth/death records, obituaries, county histories, biographies, old newspaper items - anything that would help someone build their family tree!

Feel free to email with your data contributions - every little bit helps!


Henderson County North Carolina was once part of the Cherokee Nation.
It was not opened to pioneer settlers until treaties were signed with the Cherokee indians.

Historical Henderson County Courthouse

Henderson County was formed in 1838 from the southern part of Buncombe County.

Henderson County and Hendersonville North Carolina were named after Judge Leonard Henderson (1772-1833) Chief Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court.
