Coconino County lies north of Phoenix and the county seat is Flagstaff. The city is so named on account of a flagpole raising by the first settlers of the area. Today Flagstaff is the largest community in the county. [1]

Parent County

1891--Coconino County was created 19 February 1891 from Yavapai County.  County seat: Flagstaff [2]

Boundary Changes

Arizona was part of New Spain until 1821, and then part of Mexico until 1846. Some records of early Arizona settlers may have been sent to an archives in Seville, Spain, or to archives in Mexico City.

Moreover, Arizona was part of the United States' New Mexico Territory from 1846 to 1863. In 1852 New Mexico Territory set up counties that stretched east and west including all the land that became part of Arizona. Present-day Coconino County, Arizona was once part of Taos, Rio Arriba, Santa Ana, Valencia, and Socorro counties of New Mexico.[3] When Arizona was created in 1863, these former counties were dissolved within Arizona's borders and eventually new counties were created.

If an ancestor lived in what is now Coconino County, Arizona between 1852 and 1863, first check for records in Coconino County. However, there is also a small chance that a few papers were recorded in a parent county's courthouse in Arizona (if any), or in the corresponding parent county in New Mexico.
