Pioneer Certificates

LCGS will issue a limited edition Pioneer Certification to the qualifying direct descendants of the early settlers of this county.  Many of the early pioneers have gone unrecognized so these materials will be a valuable addition to the history of Lafayette County.

Depending on when your ancestor settled in Lafayette County we offer 3 types of certificates

  • Pioneer (before 1847)
  • Early (1847-1877)
  • Centennial (1878-1897)
