Welcome to Rooks County, Kansas Genealogy Trails!

We as volunteers make it our goal to help you find your ancestors by placing data online for the free use of all researchers. We are proud to expand Kansas Trails with Rooks County. If you are interested in adding your families' information to this Website, Email Us . We will be happy to add your families' historical data, news items, marriage/birth records, obituaries; stories and pictures for the view of all researchers. 

My name is Julie Schadek and as your Rooks County, Kansas host I try to post as much data online as possible in order to make it freely available to all. I regret that I am unable to do personal research.

If you have a love for history, a desire to help others, and basic web-authoring skills, consider joining us!
Get the details on our
Volunteer Page .
[A desire to transcribe data and knowledge of how to make a basic webpage is required.]

If hosting isn't for you, we can use your help in other ways.
More information can be found on the
Volunteer Page.
