Welcome to Allen County, Kansas Genealogy Trails!

Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy

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.

If you are interested in joining Genealogy Trails as the host of this state site or any of our county websites, view our Volunteer Page for all the ins and outs of becoming a host.
