Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy

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

We regret that we are unable to perform personal research for you.
All data we come across is added to our sites, so please keep checking back here.

Founded in 1883.
The largest city, as well as being the county seat, is Lakota.
