WELCOME TO LAMAR COUNTY ALABAMA GENEALOGY TRAILS

My name is Veneta Aldridge McKinney and I am your Lamar County, Alabama host. I do not live in Lamar County, but grew up there. My family moved into the area in the 1830's, so I am interested in all aspects of the history and families of Lamar County.

Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data for the free use of all researchers.   I will try to post as much data online as possible. We gratefully accept contributions of raw data such as census information, marriage, birth, death records, obituaries, county histories, biographies, old newspaper items - anything that would help someone build their family tree!

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.
