Holmes County Neighbors
One of the first reasons to visit neighboring counties is to determine when those
counties were formed in terms of the availability of county records. It is especially important to determine if
county was formed from one of the neighboring counties because your ancestors
records may be back in the "mother" county. If other neighboring counties were broken off from yours (likely in
Holmes county) and your ancestors suddenly disappear from records, you might just look "next door".
For this reason, we have attempted to provide a brief descripition of the formation of each of our surrounding
counties along with the links to those counties. Please, utilize the links provided to dig deeper into the formation
of our neighboring counties and the availablity of their records.
