This Site is Available for Adoption

Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data for the free use of all researchers.

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 and then contact Kim.

(Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required)

We regret that we are unable to perform personal research for folks.
All data we come across will be added to this site. We thank you for visiting and hope you'll come back again to view the updates we make to this site.

*Lookup Offer*

Janette Perryman has offered to do some "look-ups" and general research for folks.  Contact her at janettesworld @ sbcglobal.net  This is what she has to say, "I have a lot of resources of my own in my library, and we have a large genealogy library in the next town and two genealogy departments close by."  She now resides in Arkansas.
Any negotiations are between you and her, I'm just passing along the offer :-)
We would appreciate it if you would submit any data that comes your way through this lookup offer to our site to help others as well. Thanks!
