Subregions_2009_MapThe Appalachian region of the United States spans several states (from New York to Mississippi). This website focuses on genealogical information of the Appalachian region. However, we also include data from beyond the Appalachian region that may be useful in your research projects. For example, many of the settlers of the area came from Scotland & England, therefore, we also include data that may be useful for those locations. We hope to continue to provide free information to the public for years to come. Contact us if you have any questions, need assistance, or wish to donate information.
