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 Volunteer
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.
Nye County was created in 1864.
It was named in honor of James W. Nye, Governor of Nevada Territory and later United States Senator from Nevada.
The first County seat was Ione City in 1864, followed by Belmont in 1867, and lastly by Tonopah in 1905.
A portion of Death Valley National Park is in Nye County
