White Pine County, Nevada
This is a new site and we hope to add as much data here as
we can that will help Nevada researchers track their family lines.
We need some help to do that though - a volunteer to host this county site. If you can make a basic webpage, and you have a desire to transcribe data for the free use of all researchers, we can use your talents! For more information view our
Volunteer Information Page.
We also are eager to accept your family's data to place on this website.
E-mail us to have it placed online here.
In the meantime, join our mailing list to be kept apprised of updates to this website.
We do regret that we cannot perform any type of personal research for you...
But, that doesn't mean you won't find free data here!
We will be adding data as it is submitted or when we get it transcribed.
So, bookmark this site and stop back again.
