My name is Rosemarie Chambers, coordinator for this Daviess County Genealogy web site. We owe this site to the contributions made by many wonderful people who have donated information, photos, family history and most importantly their time. To all of you I offer a very gracious and heart felt thank you. For those of you that are interested in donating information, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Daviess County was created from Knox County in 1817. It is located in southern Indiana and is surrounded by Greene County to the north, Martin County to the east, Dubois and Pike Counties to the south and Knox County to the west. As many of the early settlers traveled and resided between these counties, we encourage you to check out our INGenWeb neighbors with the links provided above.

The site has a new look and feel, however all of the original content is still available. The intent was to make the site more accessible and easier to maintain. If you have a problem navigating the site, or can't find something please let me know by sending me an e-mail on the link provided above.
Over the past year, much has been added. So please check out the following:
Almost every month someone has graciously added to the Bios & Obits section, I encourage everyone to keep checking back here to see what's been added.
Thanks to the suggestion of Janice Smith Hagmeier, the Cemetery section now includes relatives of the deceased along with photos of the grave site. I really love the concept and would appreciate more donations.
We have added marriage records to the Family Section along with several new links to family trees.
Some great class photo's were added to the School section.
