Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy

Welcome to New York Genealogy Trails!

Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data
and placing it online for the free use of all researchers.
This Allegany County Website
is available for adoption.


If you have a love for history, a desire to help others, and basic web-authoring skills, consider joining us!
Get the details on our Volunteer Page.
[A desire to transcribe data and knowledge of how to make a basic webpage is required.]

If hosting isn't for you, we can use your help in other ways.
More information can be found on the Volunteer Page.

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