Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy
My name is Sandra Davis, and as your Matanuska-Susitna Borough, Alaska host, I try to post as much data online as possible in order to make it freely available to all. Our goal at Genealogy Trails is to transcribe and post genealogical source data so that family researchers can track their ancestors through time, throughout the country.We gratefully accept contributions of raw data such as census information, marriage/birth/death records, obituaries, county histories, biographies, old newspaper items - anything that would help someone build their family tree!!
Please feel free to email me with your contributions - every little bit helps someone!!
I regret that I am unable to do personal research.
