Genealogy Trails is a volunteer-based project dedicated to transcribing historical and genealogical data. Our goal is to post as much data online as possible in order to make it freely available to all.

We gratefully accept your contributions of data such as census information, marriage, birth and death records, old photos, obituaries, family histories, biographies, old newspaper items - anything that would help someone build their family tree! We consider every nugget of data an important piece of the genealogy puzzle.

If you have information to donate about Hocking County, please email me with your contributions. Your donated information will be credited to you. Free genealogy research sites are fast disappearing. Please join us in transcribing data to help ensure our passion for genealogy remains free for everyone to discover. We want to help you find your ancestors wherever their trails lead!
