Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy

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.

This website is available for adoption!

We're looking for folks who share our dedication to keeping Genealogy free and are interested in helping this project be as successful as we can make it.
If you are interested in joining our group by hosting one of the available county websites, view our Volunteer Page for further information about us and EMAIL US.
[A desire to transcribe data and knowledge of how to make a basic webpage is required.]



DONATE YOUR DATA!
We welcome any information you may wish to provide for the free research of others.
So, dust off those old scrapbooks you have in your attic, dig out those old newspapers, or anything else you feel is of interest to this County, and send them our way. We are looking for obituaries, newspaper stories, biographies, Birth, Death and Marriage records, as well as interesting newspaper tidbits from years gone past - the items YOU used to put together your family trees. If you have information that you'd like to share with us on the history of this county and its people, please
SEND IT TO US and we'll make sure it gets posted online.

We regret that we are unable to perform personal research for you.
All data we come across is added to this site, so please keep checking back!



Ferry County Information
Founded February 21, 1899
County Seat: Republic
Largest city: Republic


It was named after Elisha P. Ferry, the state's first governor.

Ferry County was created out of Stevens County on February 21, 1899.
Most of the county is covered by the rugged Kettle River Range, which extends from the Canadian border at the north, all the way to its southernmost perimeter bounded by the Columbia River and Lake Roosevelt. Only a narrow north–south strip running the length of the county on the west between the San Poil River and the Okanogan County line is covered by the Okanogan Highland. Except for the town of Republic, the county is very sparsely populated.
