Hello, my name is Fred Coleman and as host of this site I hope you find the
information helpful and interesting.

Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing
genealogical and historical data for the free use of all researchers.

If you have data (non-copyrighted of course) that you would like to contribute
to the site please Email me.

While I am not able to provide any lookup services,
I will try to answer any questions about the county that I can.

We thank you for visiting and hope you'll come back again to view
the updates we make to this site.
