Osage County, located in northeastern Oklahoma, is the largest county in the state and is named after the Osage tribe.  Explorers traveled through the county in the early 1800s, and by the mid-1800s, a branch of the Shawnee Trail ran through Osage County.  In 1861, during the Civil War, the Battle of Chustenahlah took place northwest of present-day Skiatook.  The first oil well in Osage County was drilled in 1897, leading to more oil exploration in the county and wealth within the Osage tribe. The Osage Tribal Museum, Library & Archives is located in Pawhuska and features artifacts from the Osage tribe, as well as displays and archives documenting their history and culture.  Also in Pawhuska, the Osage County Historical Society Museum is located in a train depot and features exhibits of early pioneer and Native American life.  Osage Hills State Park offers camping, cabins and fishing. 

In 2000, census records showed 44,437 people living in Osage County.  Countless resources exist for tracing genealogy in Osage County including cemetery records and a local genealogy society.  For more information about genealogy in Osage County, resources are provided below.
