Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy

My name is Mary Kay, your Schenectady County Host,
I hope you enjoy your visit to Genealogy Trails
and welcome your comments, suggestions and of course, your data contributions!


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.



We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and if you think you might be interested in hosting a county or state website, or transcribing data, please read what we're all about on our Volunteer Page
(A desire to transcribe data and basic webpage skills are necessary)

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.
