The Jefferson County Ancestry, Genealogy, and History pages provide resources useful when building your family tree. Focusing upon county (court, land, and tax), church records (baptism, marriage) and other source material (i.e. naturalization and war records) will help you build your family tree. Additional information comes from archives, cemeteries, museums, or local societies. And since we also enjoy history we are striving to uncover useful information about the pioneers, points of interest, and towns that were part of early settlement activity and the surnames that were found in these areas.
Content provided begins with general ancestry, history, and genealogical information. We add our special European focus towards the Danish, German, Irish, Swedish pioneers, exploration, and settlement activity. Nothing would be complete if we didn't add a bit more specialty information regarding immigrants and their historical achievements they made while settling parts of America.
