Genealogy Trails

website for
Rock County

 



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


This website is available for adoption!

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.


All information you find on this site is submitted by people like you and me, searching for their family roots. We welcome any information you may wish to provide for the free research of others. So, dust off those old scrapbooks you have in your attic, dig out those old newspapers, or anything else you feel is of interest to this County, and send them our way. We are looking for obituaries, newspaper stories, biographies, Birth, Death and Marriage records, as well as interesting tidbits from years gone past - 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
send it to us and we'll make sure it gets posted online.

WE REGRET THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO DO PERSONAL RESEARCH FOR YOUAll data we come across will be added to this website, so please keep checking back.
