Geneva County was created by the Alabama legislature on 1868 Dec. 26. The county was named for Geneva, its principal town and county seat.

It encmpasses 578 square miles. Other towns and communities include Samson and Hartford.

Geneva County courthouse burned twice as a result the records are very limited.  If you have Geneva County records please share.
