Welcome to Genealogy Trails,
my name is Robin, your host for the beautiful state of Minnesota.
We're looking for folks who share our dedication to keeping Genealogy free and are interested in helping this project be as successful as we can make it.
If you are interested in joining our group by hosting one of the available county websites, view our Volunteer Page for further information about us.
[A desire to transcribe data and knowledge of how to make a basic webpage is required.]
DONATE YOUR DATA!
We welcome any information you may wish to provide for the free research of others.
So, dust off those old scrapbooks in your attic, dig out those old newspapers and send them our way. We are looking for obituaries, newspaper stories, biographies, birth, death and marriage records, the items YOU used to put together your family trees. If you have information that you'd like to share with us on the history of this county and its people, please E-Mail Robin and we'll make sure it is posted online.
