Our glossary word of the month is - "MOBOCRACY"

. . . Rule or domination by the masses.
(a term occasionally used when lynching is involved).


   

Our goal at Genealogy Trails is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data and placing it online for the free use by all researchers.

My name is Mary Kay, your Jackson County Host, I hope you enjoy your visit to Genealogy Trails and welcome your comments, suggestions and of course, your data contributions! If you have an obituary, biography, burial or county related history to share, please send an   email.


If you enjoy volunteering but need a flexible schedule, Genealogy Trails may be a perfect fit.
At Genealogy Trails We're looking for folks who share our dedication of putting data online and if you think you might be interested in hosting a county or state website, or transcribing data, visit our Volunteer Information Page
