Welcome to Henry County, Illinois Genealogy Trails.

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 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.


We regret that we are unable to do personal research for you.
We do our best to present free material that will help you research your family in Illinois and many times, forego our own personal research to do so. We have set up a research help page to answer most of the frequently asked questions about research in Illinois.

Please refer to
THIS PAGE before contacting us for help. Thanks!
