Welcome to Iowa Genealogy Trails!

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.

This county website is in need of a permanent host.

We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested in helping this project be as successful as we can make it. If you are interested in joining our group by hosting either this county website or one of the available county websites, view our Volunteer Information page and Email Nancy.

A desire to transcribe data and know-how to make a basic webpage is required.
