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 folks.
All data we come across will be added to this site.
We thank you for visiting and hope you'll come back again to view the updates we make to this site.




Pembina County was formed on August 12, 1867. 
According to wikipedia.org, "Pembina" is derived from the Chippewa Indian term for high bush cranberry which grew in abundance along the Pembina River.  

The city of Pembina was the county seat from 1867 to 1911 when it was moved to Cavalier.
