Historians theorize that in 1540, Spanish explorer Hernando DeSoto and his band of six hundred soldiers were the first civilized men to visit the area of Northwest Georgia that is now Floyd County. Searching for gold and pearls, DeSoto camped for about thirty days at Chiaha, the site where the Oostanaula and the Etowah Rivers meet to form the Coosa River. In the years that followed, the Cherokee Indians occupied the land they called "The Enchanted Land." Major Ridge, a prominent Cherokee leader, lived a log cabin on the banks of the Oostanaula that was later named Chieftains. Today Major Ridge's house is a museum with exhibits that range from Floyd County's Indian heritage to its current industrial growth. When gold was discovered in North Georgia in 1830, the Cherokees were moved to Oklahoma and their land given to white settlers by means of the Cherokee Land Lottery. Floyd County, GA AHGP

I am pleased to report that HB 100 of Delegate Scott Lingamfelter of Prince William County has been unanimously passed by both the House and the Senate, and will soon be sent to the Governor for signature. This should solve the problem created by last year’s legislation of inadvertently placing restrictions on access to city and county order books and indices , as described below. The companion Senate bill, SB 600, of Senator John Cosgrove of Chesapeake, was unanimously passed by the Senate, and is now before the House, where it should similarly be approved.

U.S. - Ohio
Ohio Genealogy is being developed as a genealogical and historical resource for your personal use. While the original thought was to provide this website as a resource for finding genealogy and historical data concerning Ohio on the web, we have begun adding specific data to this site, or to our sister site Access Genealogy for your personal use. In an attempt to further expand our offerings and refine your search, we have begun the creation of county websites. Our first is for Athens County, as we found the available online information to be lacking for this area of the state. You will find the link below. Enjoy! Ohio History and Genealogy

Jackson County Genealory About Jackson County The History of Jackson County, Missouri Source: Drury University In the earliest days of recorded history, French trappers traveled the river and learned the secrets from the Osage Indians who first called this land home. Kansas City which was established as the Town of Kansas, was named after the Kanza Indians which inhabited the area along with the Hopewell, Shawnee, and Delaware tribes. In 1803, what is now Jackson County became United States territory, a part of the most valuable property deal in history, the Louisiana Purchase.
