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 our websites.
~ We're all Volunteers ~
~ 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.
for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are
interested in helping to keep Genealogy Free.
If you are interested in hosting a website,
view our Volunteer Page for further information.
And now for the sad part:
We regret that we have
no time to
perform personal research for anyone.
We're too busy transcribing data to stop and do research for folks!
