  Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy

Genealogy Trails is a volunteer-based project dedicated to transcribing historical and genealogical data and placing it online for the free use of all researchers.


This New Jersey Genealogy Trails website is available for adoption. If you are interested in hosting this county website, or any other site for us, view our Volunteer Information page andemail Nancy.
(A desire to transcribe data and basic webpage-making skills are required)


Help this site grow by submitting YOUR families' data. Contact Nancy to submit your ancestors' data for inclusion on this website.

We regret that we are unable to perform personal research for you.
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.
