Genealogy and History

Finding Ancestors wherever their trails led
Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy

 


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 site is available for adoption!

If you have a love for history and/or genealogy, 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.

You can send your family's raw data (transcribed birth/marriage/death, cemetery, census, biography records)
to us
and we'll include it on this site.
