Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy


We here at Genealogy Trails are dedicated to bringing you free and accurate information that we hope brings you closer to solving your family tree mysteries! My name is Therman Kellar and I will be your Jackson County Mississippi host! You can reach me here! ! We gladly appriciate any information you may have, or would like to see on here. I do however, regret that we do not do personal research for you.

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 Kim.
(Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required)
