Welcome to Genealogy Trails
Volunteers working to put free historical data online.

My name is JANICE and as your KNOX COUNTY host I try to post as much data online as possible in order to make it freely available to all. We gratefully accept contributions of raw data such as census information, marriage/birth/death records, obituaries, county histories, biographies, old newspaper items - anything that would help someone build their family tree!!

Feel free to
email me  with your contributions - every little bit helps.

I regret that I am unable to do personal research. My grandparents were from Vincennes Indiana and many of my relatives live in the surrounding area. My family lines are Daffron, Draime, Convery, Evans,McCoy,Truckey ( Trottier).
