About the North Carolina USGenWeb Project
In March and April 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Kentucky Comprehensive Genealogy Database. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Kentucky, where collected databases would be stored. In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they could be located in the index.

At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page for a given county.

This project worked so well in Kentucky, it was decided to provide the same system for all states. The person responsible for the Haywood County USGenWeb page is Becky Howell. To contact Becky, for queries and small files, please use HaywoodCountyNC (small file/query) or for larger files please use, HaywoodCountyNC (large file).   Please include the words, "USGENWEB HAYWOOD COUNTY" along with any other subject keywords in the subject line. Please contact me if you would like to contribute your family information to the Haywood County Database.


WARNING! Any files which come as e-mail attachments with no description or explanation in the body of the e-mail will be automatically deleted.

Our Neighbors
Haywood County is located in the extreme western section of North Carolina nestled in the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains. It was formed from part of Buncombe County in 1808, and named in honor of John Haywood, who was the State Treasurer of North Carolina at that time. When it was first established it included all the land that comprises present day Macon, Jackson, Clay, Cherokee, Graham, and Swain counties in North Carolina and part of the Qualla Boundary Cherokee Reservation. At the time of it's creation, Haywood also bordered on the states of Tennessee and Georgia. Today, it is bounded by Swain, Jackson, Buncombe, Transylvania and Madison counties in North Carolina, and Cocke County in Tennessee. The county seat is Waynesville.
