Welcome to Franklin 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.
(Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required)

We're looking for DATA for our sites!!!

We would very much like to make you part of this project.

If you have information that you'd like to share about any town, family, county or subject, please send it to us and we'll make sure it gets posted to the right county.

Types of Data We're Looking to Post Online

Send transcribed biographies, obituaries, vital records, census records, newspaper gleanings, military records, or if you have walked cemeteries and have transcribed those names and dates,and any other type of data you think would be helpful to researchers.


Regretfully, we do not have time to do research for anybody.

All data we come across will be added to these sites.

We thank you for visiting and hope you'll come back again to view the updates we make to these sites.
