This is a new site and we hope to add as much data here as we can that
will help Nevada researchers track their family lines.
We need some help to do that though - a volunteer to host this county site. If you can make a basic webpage, and
you have a desire to transcribe data for the free use of all researchers, we can use your talents! For more information view our
We also are eager to accept your family's data to place on this website.
E-mail us to have it placed online here.
In the meantime, join our mailing list to be kept
apprised of updates to this website.
We do regret that we cannot perform any
type of personal research for you...
But, that doesn't mean you won't find free data here!
We will be adding data as it is submitted or when we get it transcribed. So, bookmark this site and stop back again.
One of the original nine counties created
Named for Frederick W. Lander; chief engineer of a federal wagon route through the area in 1857. Created in 1862.
This County came about as the result of a mining boom on the Reese River, along the old pony express line.
Taking a considerable portion of Churchill and Humboldt counties with it.
Lander would be known as the "mother of counties" because so many were carved out of it.
Its first county seat was Jacobsville in 1862, Austin in 1863 and Battle Mountain in 1979.
Battle Mountain is the County Seat.
