Welcome to

Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy!

Hi, my name is Tammie Stills and I am your Henderson County, North Carolina host. I try to post as much data online as possible in order to make it freely available to all. Our goal at Genealogy Trails is to transcribe and post genealogy 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!!

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 instructions on signing up.

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.

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.Join our Mailing Lists to be notified of our website updates.

I regret that I am unable to do personal research.

Henderson County North Carolina was once part of the Cherokee Nation and was not opened to pioneer settlers until treaties were signed with the Cherokee Nation in 1777 and 1785. Henderson County and Hendersonville North Carolina were named after Judge Leonard Henderson (1772 - 1833), Chief Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court.
