Welcome to Genealogy Trails,
my name is Mary Kay, your host for the beautiful state of Minnesota.
Genealogy Trails is a volunteer-based project.
We are dedicated to transcribing historical and genealogical data and placing it online for the FREE use of all researchers.

If you have family data for a Minnesota County, email me.
Biographies, birth and death records, obituaries,
newspaper stories and family history are all welcomed!

Want to Help?
If you are interested in hosting an available county site, please see the
Volunteer Page for further information.
[A desire to transcribe data and knowledge of how to make a basic webpage are required.]

We regret that we do not have time to perform any personal research.
All data we come across is placed on these websites, so keep checking back!
