Hello and welcome to the
Genealogy Trails website for Andrew
County, Missouri. As we believe all
data should be without cost, our goal
at Genealogy Trails 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 is a continuation
of our original, and highly
successful, Genealogy Trails Illinois
History and Genealogy Project and we
are excited about this opportunity to
expand into other states. We welcome
your feedback and comments, and of
course, your data contributions.
We're looking for folks
who share our dedication to putting
data online and are interested in
helping this project be as successful
as our Illinois websites are. If you
think you might be interested in
joining our group, view our Volunteer
Page for further
