Indiana Genealogy Trails

Welcome to this
Genealogy Trails Website

Happy Trails to you on your quest for your ancestors.

We started out way back in March 2000 by providing data for the state of Illinois and expanded to cover the other states in March of 2006. Since then, we've been very pleased to welcome the many new hosts who have joined our original Illinois volunteers, and to continue to bring free transcribed data to you. This site is co-hosted by Julie Schadek and Brenda Wiesner 

~ We're completely independent - no big corporation tells us what to do ~
 ~ We do not accept advertising.  NO BANNERS or POP-UPs ALLOWED! ~

~ We're pretty much insane about transcribing data - HOWEVER - we do NOT write the history, we just transcribe it ~

Our hosts are
required to add data to their sites, so you won't see hosted sites that sit for years and years with no changes. As for our unhosted sites, our group works as a team to add data to them on a rotating schedule. So even though a site doesn't have its own host, it will still get data added to it ... just not on as regular a schedule as our hosted sites.

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

If you have a love for history, a desire to help others, and basic webpage-making 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 anyone..

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


Happy Trails to you on your quest for your ancestors.


Indiana is a U.S. state located in the Midwestern and Great Lakes regions of North America. Indiana is the 38th largest by area and the 16th most populous of the 50 United States. Its capital and largest city is Indianapolis. Indiana was admitted to the United States as the 19th U.S. state on December 11, 1816.

Before becoming a territory, varying cultures of indigenous peoples and historic Native Americans inhabited Indiana for thousands of years. Since its founding as a territory, settlement patterns in Indiana have reflected regional cultural segmentation present in the Eastern United States; the state's northernmost tier was settled primarily by people from New England and New York, Central Indiana by migrants from the Mid-Atlantic states and from adjacent Ohio, and Southern Indiana by settlers from the Southern states, particularly Kentucky and Tennessee.
