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.

Weld County Host: Kathy Craig

If you are interested in joining Genealogy Trails as the host of any of our

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