Featuring: Adams County IDGenWeb Project
Adams County was created in 1911 from Washington County from the original 1879 Boise County. It was named for U.S. President John Adams. It is comprised of 1,370 square miles of mountains, forests, rivers, high deserts and is bordered on the west by Hells Canyon. The county seat is Council, Idaho. Some of the present-day towns and communities are Bear, Cupturn, Goodrich, Fruitvale, Indian Valley, Mesa, New Meadows, Price Valley and Tamarack.
The Adams County IDGenWeb Project (http://adams.idgenweb.org/
) features cemetery, family history, history and local photos indexes, as well as other Idahoan links to benefit with your research. In the “Family History” index is an unique story about the “Long Valley Ambush” that occurred in the late summer of 1878 when a group of renegade of Indians ambush a few locals.

This county is up for adoption to anyone with lots of Adams County resources to add to the website for its patrons. Also, have some basic knowledge of how to create a webpage. But, it doesn’t mean there’s someone on our IDGenWeb Team that can help out from time to time. If you think you might be interested, read through the IDGenWeb Volunteer page (http://idgenweb.org/volunteers.html
) and contact the State Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org
) for further information and/or instruction.
We hope you can join us on our IDGenWeb Team. Thank you for your time.
