Welcome to Merced County, California Genealogy Trails!

We are a group of volunteers that help you track your ancestors through time with free
genealogical transcribed data! Feel free to search our state and county data.
Consider contributing and helping free genealogy grow.

* This County is available for adoption *
We regret we are unable to perform personal research but will place data on this site as
we come across it or as it is submitted.

We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested
in helping this project be successful. If you are interested in joining our group,
view our Volunteer Page for further information and then contact Nancy

County Seat: Merced
Year Organized: 1855
Square Miles: 1,929

Merced County was formed in 1855 from parts of Mariposa County. Parts of its territory were given to Fresno County in 1856. The county derives its name from the Merced River, or El Río de Nuestra Señora de la Merced (River of Our Lady of Mercy); named in 1806 by an expedition, headed by Gabriel Moraga, which came upon it at the end of a hot dusty ride.
