This Site is Available for Adoption

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

We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested in helping this project be as successful as it can be. If you are interested in joining Genealogy Trails,
view our Volunteer Page for further information.
(Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required)
