Welcome to Hamilton
Genealogy and History
Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy
Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data for
the free use of all researchers.
This Hamilton County Site is
Available for Adoption
but you can send your data submissions here
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 are interested in joining Genealogy Trails, view
further information and then contact
(Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe
data is required)
We regret that we are unable to perform personal research
All data we come across will be added to this site. We thank you for visiting and hope you'll come back again to
view the updates we make to this site.
If you would like to be kept informed of our state and county website updates, subscribe
