- In 1852 - New Mexico Territory created counties that stretched east and west from the Texas border to the California border, including the land that later became Arizona. The land covered by present-day Coconino County, Arizona was once part of Taos, Rio Arriba, Santa Ana, Bernalillo, Valencia, and Socorro counties of New Mexico.  Records during this period may have been sent to courthouses in their respective New Mexico counties.
- In 1863 - Arizona Territory was created from the western half of New Mexico territory. All previous counties were dissolved, and eventually four new counties were created in the new Arizona Territory. One of these counties was Yavapai County, which covered land that later became Coconino County. Records were sent to Yavapai County offices.
