Perry County Bicentenniel 1814 - 2014
Perry County First Families
Trace your genealogy to a "Perry County First Family" and you can earn a certificate, lapel pin, and be recognized as a decendant of one of Perry County's early settlers. The program is $10.00 for the first certificate and lapel pin. You can do a supplement on a different family line and receive the certificate for $5.00. The certificate will state your name and that you are descendant of your ancestor and his/her name and the date of when they first came to Perry County.
Time frame is from our beginning to 1865 to qualify for a First Family of Perry County. These will make nice keepsakes for remembering our 200th Anniversary and they will help generations to come to know their lineage.
