Taney County was officially organized on January 6, 1837 from a portion of Greene County and has since helped give birth to several more counties. Originally Taney covered a much larger area than we see today. Just 4 years after its formation, territory was taken to create Ozark County. In 1851 the western portion of the county was taken to form Stone County. In 1857 Douglas County was formed partly from Taney, and Howell County was taken from territory originally in Taney but now part of Ozark County. Then in 1859 the northern part was taken, along with territory from Greene and Webster Counties to form Christian County. So if your ancestors have lived in any of these counties, they MAY belong to the wonderful Taney crowd. The goal of this website is to help provide access to known records of value for those researching their Taney County roots. This will involve hosting records that have been transcribed or compiled or linking you to such records resident elsewhere on the Internet. Perhaps even more important than any specific records, we will attempt to facilitate your connecting with other researchers. Your suggestions and help in this effort are always welcome. And if you have access to any records which should be added, we'd love to hear from you!
