  Welcome to Kansas Trails' RICE County. Our goal is helping you find your ancestors by placing data online for the Free use of all researchers.  We are proud to expand Kansas with Rice County, providing our "experience" gained from years of researching our ancestors and website hosting.  We want to hear about you and the history of your ancestors from this beautiful State. We also need contributions of your data, history and stories to make this a great place to research.  Everything is helpful: Obituaries, Biographies, Photos and County History, to name a few.

  As data becomes available, we will put it online.  Information for the County of Rice will be posted as fast as we can find, type and/or receive it.  We welcome your feedback and comments, and of course, your data contributions.
