Welcome to Ellis County, Oklahoma. The goal is to put as much raw data online as possible, following copyright laws. To provide free internet access to online records of historical and genealogical content in order to help you with your search for your ancestors. If you would like to inquire about volunteering, submitting data, etc. , please contact me by email or ICQ #8355705. All assistance and donations of data gratefully accepted.

I live in Woodward and have had ties to Woodward, Ellis, Harper and Beaver Counties since the early 1900s when the Crail and Shepherd families filed for homestead. If you have connections to them, drop me a line. Always happy to visit with "kin" and compare notes on the family tree.

We will have available an official U.S.Government Centennial Post Office stamp with the face of "Ella Rose" who started the Catesby Post Office, This stamp will be good for July 6, 2002 only, but for the cost of the postage stamp, anyone will be able to send their mail that day only from Catesby, Oklahoma.
