Many thanks to Anna Newell for all her work on this state.
She has been the host of this state since its beginning and we hope you appreciate her efforts as much as we have.

Though she has scaled back her workload, she is still hosting Randolph and Sharp counties for us.

This state site is now available for adoption!

If you are interested in joining Genealogy Trails as the host of this state site or any of our county websites,
view our
Volunteer Page for all the ins and outs of becoming a host.
(Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required)

Arkansas postcard

Arkansas was originally a part of the province of Louisiana, and constituted a portion of that undefined region lying west of the Mississippi, which received not a tread of the white man until the present century, unless visited by De Soto, who explored the valley of the Mississippi in 1541.  In the arrangement of territories it was separated from Louisiana and attached to Missouri.  It remained in this connection till 1819, when it was erected into a district territory, under its present name.  The Rocky mountains were its western limits; but by congressional acts in 1824 and by subsequent treaties with the Cherokee Indians, its area was curtailed.  In 1836, a convention of the representatives of the people assembled at Little Rock, and adopted a state constitution; and the same year Arkansas was admitted into the Union as an independent state.
