Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy


Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time
by transcribing genealogical and historical data and placing
it online for the free use of all researchers.

This Ford County website is available for adoption.


If you have a love for history, a desire to help others, and basic web-authoring skills, consider joining us!
Get the details on our
Volunteer Page.
[A desire to transcribe data and knowledge of how to make a basic webpage is required.]

If hosting isn't for you, we can use your help in other ways.
More information can be found on the
Volunteer Page.
