Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy

This Site is Available for Adoption

State Host: Melody


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 Nancy.

(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.

you would like to have posted on this website, please contact me
