History and Genealogy A
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
We regret that we are unable to perform any personal research for you.
