"Where Your Journey Begins"

Welcome to Gwinnett County

A Proud Member of the Genealogy Trails Group


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

The volunteers at Genealogy Trails History Group are dedicated to transcribing genealogical and historical data, and placing it online for free use for all researchers.

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

If you have data, transcriptions, family bibles or any other information you would like to contribute, please contact Tam
