Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy
Welcome to the Alcorn County, Mississippi Genealogy Trails website. My name is Pat and I am your Alcorn County host.
We want your data so check your closets, attics, and old scrapbooks. If you have anything to add to our page, email your data to
me and I'll take care of putting it online. Everything on our site is free to view
and we are continually adding updates so check back often.
Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data
and posting that data online for the free use of all researchers. We are always looking for new data to post.
We're also looking for folks who share our dedication for 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.
(Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required)
