Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy

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)


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.
But in the meantime we'll be posting information as we come across it.  We hope you will consider contributing your Obits, Biographies and Pioneer Family History.  Send you contributions to Veneta.

If you would like to be kept informed of our state and county website updates, subscribe to any or all of our
mailing lists
Alabama is covered under our "Southern States" mailing list.
