Welcome to the Lake County TNGenWeb site.  The goal of this site is to provide you with free information and resources that you may find helpful in your genealogy and family history research.



Lake County is located in West Tennessee, one of the state’s three “grand divisions.” Lake County was formed in 1870 from Obion County and is named for Reelfoot Lake, created in the 1811-12 earthquakes.  Ridgely and Tiptonville, the county seat, are the major incorporated areas.
