Welcome to Pershing County, Nevada History and Genealogy

Lovelock Courthouse


This Site is Available for Adoption

Pershing County is the youngest Nevada county and was formed from Humboldt County in 1919, shortly after World War I, and is named after General John J. Pershing. Records and material prior to 1919 will more likely be found on the Humboldt web site so don't hesitate to go there in search of ancestors.
Lovelock, the county seat was incorporated as a city in 1917 and is named after the founding father, George Lovelock, one of the early Nevada pioneers.
