Your state host is Gene Phillips
Please send any data submissions to me. I will upload them as soon as possible.

This Site is Available for Adoption

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

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

We'll be doing the best we can to create a website that you will find helpful, useful and meaningful as you trace the trails of your ancestors through Leake County until a permanent host can be found.

We regret that we are unable to perform personal research for folks.
All data we come across will be added to this site. We thank you for visiting and hope you'll come back again to view the updates we make to this site.

If you can't be a County Host, you can still be a great deal of help. We need volunteers who will find interesting Leflore County documents to transcribe and email to us. We are looking for the "raw data" information such as Biographies, Deaths, Births, Marriages and Obituaries. There will be the native Indian history of the area that will be of interest to a lot of people, as well as the Pioneer Families of the county
