WELCOME! My name is Diane Siniard and I am the county coordinator for Houston County's Lost Souls Genealogy page. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or suggestions. There is a search engine available for this site. It is located on the home page for your convenience!
I would like to get transcriptions of cemeteries, birth, marriage, and death certificates, photos and anything else you feel may benefit other researchers.
Houston County was established on February 9, 1903, from parts of Dale, Geneva and Henry counties.
It was named after George Smith Houston, the 24th Governor of Alabama.
This area of the state was historically developed for cotton plantations and had a high proportion of African Americans in the population until after the early 20th century, when many migrated to northern and midwestern cities to escape the Jim Crow oppression. Elements of historic racial segregation appear in criminal justice proceedings.
Here is a spot where you can search for any information that we have. A great place to start if you are just ready to dive into our pages!
