Welcome.  I hope you find this site a valuable tool in your research.

LOOK LEFT!

The buttons on the left hand side of each page of this website provide links to great data available for researchers. For example, find marriage records under "Vital & Other Records."  Want to know the address of the County Clerk? Check under "Resources." Under "History" you will find links to digitized images of several history books for Calhoun County.

Please Note: My role is to maintain this website. I usually cannot provide information about specific individuals or families you may be researching. You should carefully read the CALHOUN COUNTY GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY, RESOURCES and VITAL & OTHER RECORDS pages (on the left hand border).  Check back often because I will be adding a great deal of new data.  Sandy Redmond, Webmaster
