We're looking for DATA for this site!!!
We're looking for the "raw data" folks can use to build
their family trees (rather than the actual trees
themselves). This includes the transcribed data from the vital records, biographies from the county histories as
well as the county history information itself, transcriptions of obituaries, burial data from cemetery trompings
and/or readings, the data from military pensions and other service records; enumerations from census years, any
newspaper gleanings for the family members including birth announcements, marriage announcements, death notices/obits
and anything in between.
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.
WE REGRET THAT WE ARE
UNABLE TO DO PERSONAL RESEARCH FOR YOU.
All data we come across will be added to this website, so please
keep checking back.
