History and Genealogy

part of the Genealogy Trails Group

Illinois Genealogy Trails is an ALL-VOLUNTEER organization whose goal is to put genealogical and historical information online for the free use of all researchers.
We transcribe genealogical and historical data so that you can track your ancestors through time, no matter where their trails led them.

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.
