Welcome to Boone County Genealogy! I am the County Coordinator for the Boone County Trails to the Past. The Indiana State Coordinator for Trails to the Past is Jana Cortez, I hope you find a wealth of information on these pages to aid you with your research efforts in Boone County. I don't live in Boone County, so unfortunately I'm unable to assist you any further with your personal research, other than the data and helpful resources I know you'll find among these pages. There are links to various genealogical organizations, libraries and message boards that may be able to provide additional help with research and look-up services. I try to post all new data as soon as possible after obtaining it, so bookmark us and check back often!


Boone County Genealogy, Trails to the Past wouldn't be possible without the generous contributions of materials and data from volunteers, researchers and the hard work and efforts of the County Coordinators who set the framework and keep it growing. Please help us to continue to grow by submitting something from your research or materials that could benefit others. I'm hoping you've found something here useful for your research, and the best way to repay in kind is to contribute something that can benefit others. You'll find a link to the page for submitting data to the site, or making comments and suggestions, which are also very much appreciated!
