We firmly believe in keeping genealogy research free and if you feel the same way and would like to contribute to keeping information free for researchers we are always looking for stuff to add to the website. What kind of stuff, you ask? Cemetery Records, Churches, Biographies, Birth, Death, and Marriage Records, Photos, Newspaper articles, Family stories, Bible records, Historical data and anything else you can think of that might benefit you or another researcher.  If you would like to donate material please email it.  We promise your contributions will be kept free and you will be sole ownership of the data.  You will be given full credit for your contributions not only on this website but with Genealogy Trails also.

We are unable to do personal research for you, please don't ask.  If someone would like to take on that task of doing research or look-ups from Crawford County please let us know  Everything posted on this site belongs solely to the contributor and will not be copied or sold. The information on this site may not be included in any other databases, publications, websites or web pages, etc. without the written consent of the submitter or the webmaster.  If you find errors or discrepancies please contact the submitter.  I am not responsible for the accuracy of submitted material.  Now on to the good stuff......
