Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by

While I am not able to provide any lookup services,
I will try
to answer any questions about the county that I can.
We thank you for visiting and hope
you'll come back again to view
the updates we make to this site.
Traill county was created in 1875 by the 1874-75 territorial legislature.
It was named after Walter John Strickland Traill, an employee of the
Hudson's Bay Company and son of Canadian pioneer
Catharine Parr Traill.
