Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy
Welcome To Appling County

I am Tam Inman and I will be your host. My main focus is to add information to help others in researching their family history. The "Genealogy Family" has a strong bond and are the most helpful people I have ever known. Hopefully this site will give back to some of the many, many people that have given to me over the past ten years. Genealogy is truly my passion.

If you find something useful on this site, please let me know. There's nothing better than knowing you made a difference in someones family research :)

If you have family history to donate, or want to make a suggestion, please e-mail me


Our goal at Genealogy Trails is to help you track your ancestors through time and place by transcribing genealogical and historical data and placing it online for the free use of all researchers.

This is a continuation of our original, Illinois Genealogy Trails History and Genealogy Project and we are excited about this opportunity to expand into other states. We welcome your feedback and comments, and your data contributions.

If you think you might be interested in joining our group, view our
Volunteer Page for further information and instructions on signing up. We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested in helping this project be as successful as it can be.

If you have data that you would like to have posted on this website, please
e-mail me.

Any data we come across will be added to this site.
We regret that we are unable to perform any personal research for you.
