The CountyHistorian website was established February 2007 by me Will Johnson, Professional Genealogist, Biographer and Historian. I've been doing genealogy as a hobby for 30 years, and professionally since 2001. Although I started this business doing genealogy, I found that it's the process of documenting that I enjoy. This naturally led to pursuing articles that weren't strictly about a person's family tree. I've writen several biographical articles without really finding out much about the person's ancestors. Also I've writen histories of companies and organizations.

The vast vast majority of my work is still in GEDCOM and internal form. My databases so far contain over 300,000 individuals. Most of my research is not posted online at all, but I've posted a small amount of my most recent research on my this wiki. Click here to see an index of every page on this Cecilweb wiki.
