Main Page

All of our original Kit Carson County ancestors came from somewhere else. Many of them and their children stayed in the county but many others thought the grass would be greener and the rain or jobs surer somewhere else. This page is set up as part of a "grass-roots" effort to track those migrations from one county to another.

Kit Carson County Migrations Project:
Immigrations [Latin - immigrãre, to enter and settle.]
Emigrations [Latin - èmigrãre, to move away from.]

Kit Carson County Migrations Project: To submit your ancestor's name to the Kit Carson County project pages send an email message to M.D. Monk, email: with the information outlined below on the Primary or Eldest member of the family that moved.

US Migrations Project Master Database: To submit your ancestor's name to the US Migrations Project master database, collect the information outlined below and then go to the Migrations Project Database Entry Page and submit the data on your ancestor via the on-line form.

I would suggest you submit your ancestor to both projects. The surnames on these pages are indexed using Rootsweb's Surname Helper so they will show up when visitors do a surname search on Rootsweb. However surnames in the US Migrations master database will not show using Rootsweb's search tools. Conversely, searches of the Migrations Project national database will not show surnames listed in Surname Helper for any page on Rootsweb. Submitting the data twice gives you the most exposure and the best of both worlds.
