Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy

Hello and welcome to the Genealogy Trails website for Dawson County, Georgia.

This County is available for adoption.
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 of course, your data contributions. If you have data that you would like to have posted on this website, please contact us.

We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested in helping this project be as successful as our Illinois websites are.

If you think you might be interested in joining our group, view our Volunteer Page for further information and instructions on signing up..
