Our goal is helping you find your ancestors by placing data online for the Free use of all researchers.  We need help with contributions of your data, history and stories to make this a great site for research.  Everything is helpful: Obituaries, Biographies, County History, Family Bible Records, to name a few. Information will be posted as fast as we can find, type and/or receive it.  We apologize that we can't use your .GEDCOM files.

We welcome your feedback, comments, and your data contributions.

We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested in helping this project be as successful as it can be. If you are interested in joining Genealogy Trails, view our Volunteer Page for further information.
(Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required)
