History and Genealogy
for
Kane County, Utah

Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy


Our goal at Genealogy Trails is to transcribe and post genealogical source data so that family researchers can track their ancestors through time, throughout the country.

This county site needs a dedicated host to make this site the best that it can be!
If you think that you may be interested in volunteering to host a county or state please view
our
Volunteer Information page and contact Nancy.
(A desire to transcribe data and the know-how to make a basic webpage is required)


Join our mailing lists for researchers looking to connect and share information. You never know who you might meet and what family data they may share with you -- it could start a whole new branch of the family! We also use the mailing lists to announce our website updates.

Remember to look around at the other states we have online and consider donating your source information -- every little bit helps someone.

We accept transcribed data contributions of:

  • Biographies
  • Birth Records
  • Cemetery Transcriptions
  • Death Records
  • Land Deed Records
  • Marriage Records
  • Military - Veterans, Casualty Lists, etc.
  • Obituaries
  • Wills

Please
email Sandy if you have any questions or comments.

Founded in 1864, Kane County was named for Col. Thomas L. Kane, a friend of the Mormon settlers.
Its county seat and largest city is Kanab.


The Colorado River, reformed as Lake Powell, forms its eastern boundary. Arizona lies on the southern boundary.
Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument covers much of the county. A rugged and inhospitable country of deserts,
mountains and cliffs makes up the terrain, with breath-taking scenery in every area
