Welcome to Angelina County

 the  "Land of the Little Angel "


Hi! We are Billy and Carla Karbowski Clifton, the County Coordinators for

Angelina County TXGenWeb Project. 

Angelina County has a wonderful and colorful history! Please help to preserve and share this beautiful county by contributing any photos, deeds, census records, cemetery records, family histories, photographs, etc., that you might wish to contribute. Please feel free to send me your Angelina County information and I will be happy to add it to our collection.  If you can do lookups for county resources please let me know or sign up on our volunteer page.

The area that is now Angelina County was originally occupied by agricultural Indians of Caddoan and Atakapan-related stock. The county was named for a Hainai Indian girl who, according to Spanish legend, helped early Spanish missionaries of the area around 1690. The Spanish Franciscan priests called her Angelina or "Little Angel".  Eventually her village became known as Angelina's Village and the stream where it was located became Angelina's river.

Angelina County, Texas was formed in 1846 from Nacogdoches County, Texas.

The county seat is Lufkin.
