Welcome to Kansas banner

Once a land where Indians roamed, owned by Spain, France, and then by the United States with the Louisiana Purchase, the territory of Kansas saw many changes in its struggle for statehood. In these pages, you will find some of this interesting history, as well as the genealogies of those that lived through the settling of Kansas. If you have any suggestions for topics, comments, etc. or would like to donate historical or genealogical research to this project, please contact us.

A huge thanks to Cindy Koegel who has served as our State Coordinator for the past 11 years! She has decided it was time to step down and allow someone else to take over the project.  She will continue to host her county websites.
