Lincoln County, Nevada
Proud Part of Genealogy Trails
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.
Lincoln County was created after Nevada moved
its state line eastward and southward at the expense of Utah and Arizona territories.
Named for Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States in 1866.
The original bill called for the creation of Stewart County, after Nevada Senator William M. Stewart, but the bill
was changed in a substitute bill.
Crystal Springs was the first county seat in 1861, followed by Hiko in 1867 and Pioche 1871.
Pioche is the County Seat.
