Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy

Hello and welcome to the Genealogy Trails website for Lamar 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 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
contact us.

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