We're looking for DATA for this site!!!
WHAT TYPE OF DATA WE'RE LOOKING TO ADD TO THIS SITE:
We're looking for the "raw data" folks can use to build their family trees (rather than the actual trees themselves). This includes the transcribed data from the vital records, biographies from the county histories as well as the county history information itself, transcriptions of obituaries, burials data from cemetery trompings and/or readings, the data from military pensions and other service records; enumerations from census years, any newspaper gleanings for the family members including birth announcements, marriage announcements, death notices/obits and anything in between. To help us get the data online quickly, it's very helpful to send the data transcribed (rather than sending in a graphic).
EMAIL ME (No research requests please. I have no further data to give other than what is placed on this website)
This County is available for adoption! We're looking for people to put genealogical and historical data online for the free use of all researchers, visit our Volunteer Information page.
