GENEALOGY TRAILS: WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO

 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.  Genealogy Trails is completely independent and not affiliated with any commercial enterprise.  You won't find any banner ads or pop-ups here.  All of our hosts are volunteers who regularly make updates to their respective sites.  Unfortunately, transcribing data keeps us so busy that we are unable to do personal research for anyone.  We thank you for visiting and hope you'll come back again to view the updates we make to the site.  Happy trails to you on your quest for your ancestors!

This site is available for adoption!

VOLUNTEER: HOW YOU CAN HELP

If you have a love for history, a desire to transcribe data, and knowledge of how to make a basic webpage, please consider becoming a state or county host!  Get the details on our Volunteer page.

If hosting isn't for you, there are other ways to help.  Check your attics and dust off your family scrapbooks.  We're looking for data for this site.  If you would like to submit data for Mecklenburg County, please email me with your information.  You may also submit an obituary to us for any of our county sites.  We appreciate your contributions!
