Website for Idaho genealogy and history, featuring ancestry, family history, and genealogy birth records, marriage records, death records, census records, and military records.
In an attempt to further expand our offerings and refine your search, we have begun the creation of county websites. Those county sites can be found in the list of links to the right. While only a small portion of Idaho counties are presently listed, the amount of data for those counties is quite impressive.
The “Search Idaho Genealogy” search on the right side will search all of the Idaho Genealogy website, but will not search the data linked to from our offsite data pages.
