Idaho Genealogy Ancestors'

Idaho Counties

Click on the county name to go to a county page.

Extinct or Renamed Counties[1]:

Origin of Idaho

Idaho began as part of Oregon Territory. The counties in the panhandle became part of the Washington Territory in 1853[2]. It became a separate territory in 1863, then encompassing most of what became Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. Idaho was the 43rd state admitted to the Union, which occurred 3 July 1890.

Did you know

  • The Idaho State Archives (formerly the Idaho State History Society Public Archives and Research Library or PARL) is located at 2205 Old Penitentiary Road in Boise. They have a large collection of newspapers, photographs, and manuscripts relating to Idaho. The Research Center for the Archives is open Tuesday thru Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Their web site gives more information about their holdings.
     
  • You can find your villainous Idaho ancestors at Idaho Blacksheep Ancestors.
  • Gretna Greens. When an Idaho couple's marriage is not in their home county, search for it in alternate places like Coeur d'Alene, Kootenai, Idaho, or West Wendover, Elko, Nevada.[3]

Origin of Idaho

Idaho began as part of Oregon Territory. The counties in the panhandle became part of the Washington Territory in 1853[2]. It became a separate territory in 1863, then encompassing most of what became Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. Idaho was the 43rd state admitted to the Union, which occurred 3 July 1890.
