Welcome to Cherokee County,
Oklahoma Genealogy Trails!

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 county is available for adoption!

If you are interested in joining Genealogy Trails
as the host of any of our county websites,
view our
Volunteer Page for all the ins and outs of becoming a host.

(Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required)

Check your attics!
Dust off your family scrapbooks!
We're looking for DATA for our sites!!!

We would very much like to make you part of this project.
If you have information that you'd like to share about any town, family, county or subject,
please send it to us and we'll make sure it gets posted to the right county.

Types of Data We're Looking to Post Online
Send transcribedbiographies, obituaries, vital records, census records, newspaper gleanings, military records, or if you have walked cemeteries and have transcribed those names and dates,and any other type of data you think would be helpful to researchers
