Welcome to Delaware Genealogy Trails!


This site is available for Adoption!

Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing historical and genealogical data for our websites.

Your data contributions, feedback and comments are welcome.
If you have data that you would like to have posted on this website,
please contact
Mary Kay, the Delaware State Host

We need some help - a volunteer to host this county website. If you can make a basic webpage, and you have a desire to transcribe data for the free use of all researchers, we can use your talents!

Review our
Volunteer Information and email Nancy if you are interested in joining Genealogy Trails.
