Baxter County, Arkansas, USGenWeb

Welcome to Baxter County, Arkansas GenWeb Project

Your Baxter County GenWeb Coordinator is Ruth Ann Davis.

I have been the county coordinator for Fulton County, Arkansas for many years.
I just took over the Baxter County site in May 2015.
I am busily working to get the pages updated and the links changed and tested.
If you find errors, broken links or have items to include, please let me know.
Just email me at the address below but please include Baxter County in the Subject area
so I know to post or correct this web site.

I love preserving and sharing photos of the pioneers and others who came after them.
I would like to include a photo section on this website.
Just let me know if you are interested in this addition and send me your photo files in jpeg if possible
with the names, ages, and any other information you would like to share on your ancestors.

Unfortunately, I am not able to do any research for the Baxter County area because I live in Alabama and not Arkansas.

Happy Hunting!!

Below you may search this entire website. I would like to suggest that you only search LAST or SURNAMES and not full names.

The reason for this is that many of the newspaper articles the editor/writer abbreviated the first names many times and if you search with a full name you will not have a productive search. An example is the first name George would have been written Geo., so if you searched for George Burkett, the search would miss Geo. Burkett. Also try other ways to spell the surname you are searching. Sometimes names were written with different spellings.
