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,
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!
