Hello - My name is Lynda and I am pleased to be your Jones County host for Genealogy Trails. If you have any family information, obituaries, biographies, births, deaths, or anything relating to Jones County, and would like to share it with us, please e-mail it to me.

Also, if you have any information or stories about the county and some of the special attractions or genealogical history that would also be appreciated. The pioneer families of Jones County Iowa have so very much to be proud of. The foundation that began many years ago is still evident today here in East Central Iowa.

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
