Finding Illinois Ancestors
Illinois Genealogy Trails

Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy

This Site is Available for Adoption

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

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 our
Volunteer Page for further information and then contact Kim.
(Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required)

We need help with contributions of your data, history and stories to make this a great site for research! 
Everything is helpful: Obituaries, Biographies, County History, Census Records, Family Bible Records, to name a few. We do not put gedcoms or family trees online - we're looking for the transcribed data from the ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS that you used to put your tree together.

  As data becomes available, we'll put it on this site.  Information will be posted as fast as we can find, type and/or receive it. It helps immensely if you can transcribe whatever you're sending us (rather than sending us a scanned picture to type from)

We have an easy form to
Submit an Obituary

Send other types of data directly to US

We welcome your feedback, comments, and your data contributions.

We regret that we are unable to perform personal research for folks.
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 to any or all of our
