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