Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy

We appreciate all help we can get to make

this a better site.
Anything sent to us that we use will have full
credit given.

Please contact US if you have any questions, comments, or to submit data on the Florida site.

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.


If you think that you may be interested in volunteering to host a county or state please view our Volunteer Information page.
(A desire to transcribe data and the know-how to make a basic webpage is required)

Join our mailing lists for researchers looking to connect and share information. You never know who you might meet and what family data they may share with you -- it could start a whole new branch of the family!
We also use the mailing lists to announce our website updates. Florida is covered under the South-Eastern Region Mailing List

Remember to look around at the
other states and consider donating your source information -- every little bit helps someone.

New River County was created in 1858 and was renamed Bradford County in 1861.

It was named for Captain Richard Bradford, who fought in the American Civil War and was killed in the Battle of Santa Rosa Island.
