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.

This county site is available for adoption.
If you are interested in joining Genealogy Trails

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)
