Our goal at Genealogy Trails is to transcribe and post genealogy and historical data so family researchers can track their ancestors through time throughout the country. We gratefully accept contributions of raw data such as census information, marriage/birth/death records, obituaries, county histories, biographies, old newspaper items - anything that would help someone build their family tree!
Feel free to email with your data contributions - every little bit helps!
