Welcome to Bibb  County Alabama.
We are proud to be part of The Heart of Dixie Project

Bibb County was created by the Alabama Territorial Legislature on February 7, 1818. It was one of the first thirteen counties to be added to the seven already existing when Alabama was still a part of the Mississippi Territory. Originally, it was called Cahaba (spelled Cahawba for many years) to preserve the name given it by the Choctaw Indians, Oka Aba. On December 4, 1820, the State Legislature renamed it in honor of the late Governor William Wyatt Bibb. As it was then constituted, it contained much of what is now the southern part of Shelby County and the western part of Chilton County. Its present area is 625 square miles.  Help us help you and others by contributing your records to Bibb County.

We look forward to gathering and adding records to help researchers.  Due to the tremendous amount of work and effort it takes to gather, transcribe and compile information for the county sites I/we do not have the time to do individual research. We will do our best to provide you with the resources for your research by placing records we acquire and request you help in our efforts by submitting your records to Margie Daniels.

Alterations were made to the boundaries in 1818, 1819, 1820, 1821 and 1868. The county name was changed to Bibb on 1820 Dec. 4.
Since Bibb changed boundaries many times it is important to research the counties your ancestors lived in prior to the change.
