Hello and Welcome -- My name is Nettie Mae and I'm the new coordinator for Jackson County. I live near-by in Clinton and also coordinate the Clinton County IAGenWeb site.  There is so much overlap and I'm really excited to share the information I have. You can contact me anytime with questions, updates, submissions or suggestions by emailing me at I am not able to do look-ups at this time unfortunately. For that, please visit our Research Aides page.

The Jackson County IAGenWeb is a volunteer effort to promote genealogical research and to promote records preservation and availability by providing online access to records and information for free. We are a part of the IAGenWeb Project which is part of the USGenWeb Project. These sites are dedicated to providing free online genealogy records and resources.

My main goal is to bring some of the genealogical and historical information available in Jackson County to you in a way that helps you learn more about your ancestors and, hopefully, causes you to be curious enough to want to learn even more. We are not here to provide you with ALL the information but rather an index or some other indication that there IS info and where you might find out more.


There are so many areas of interest in Jackson County, genealogy and local history. We have tried to put as much online as we can, and we will continue to add information.  Please keep in mind that All the work here is done by Wonderful volunteers. If you have time or information to share, we would love to hear from you.

The best resource of all continues to be the volunteers and visitors to our website -- You! Many visitors have typed and submitted some of the most interesting items found within these pages. I hope, as you have time, you will consider sending us your info or transcribing and typing up info to share with others here on our site.

Volunteers are desperately needed to transcribe the records that help us continually update the site. If you'd want to volunteer to help, please Join Our Team, or contact me directly.
