This website is newly adopted!
Hello! I am Jessica Reed and I have just started working with Genealogy Trails! I have ancestors in Lawrence County dating back to the 1830's, and
there are descendents of those ancestors still living in the county today! I have been working on my own family genealogy for roughly seven years.
Although that may not seem like a lot of time, I am lucky to have the guidance of my mother, who has been working on her family genealogy for more than thirty years! I am very excited to begin
working on this project!
Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing
genealogical and historical data and placing it online for the free use of all researchers.
Founded December 1815 from parts of Gallia and Scioto Counties, with the county seat originally being established
The county was named for James Lawrence, naval hero in the War of 1812
In 1851 the county seat was moved from Burlington to Ironton
