Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data, and placing it online for the free use of all researchers. 

 We regret that we are unable to perform personal research for folks.
All data we come across will be added to this site. We thank you for visiting, and hope you'll come back again to view the updates we make to this site.

We're looking for DATA for this site!!!

If you are interested in adding your families' information to this website, Email Us.
We'll be happy to help your families' obituaries, news items and other historical data find a home here at Alabama Genealogy Trails, where it will remain free for all to view.

If you have a love for history, a desire to help others, and basic web-authoring skills, consider joining us!  If hosting isn't for you, we can use your help in other ways.  Get the details on our Volunteer Page.
[A desire to transcribe data and knowledge of how to make a basic webpage is required.]

However, if you aren't interested in hosting, you can be a tremendous help by simply transcribing records such as newspaper obituaries, marriage, birth, and military announcements (be sure to include your source) to a Word doc. and emailing them to us for inclusion on the site!
