Genealogy Trails

Welcome to Garfield County
Colorado Genealogy Trails!

Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy
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.

This county is available for adoption!

If you are interested in joining Genealogy Trails as the host of any of our
county websites, view our Volunteer Page for all the ins and outs of becoming a host.

(Enough knowlege to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required.)
