Welcome to Berks County, Pennsylvania
History and Genealogy

Welcome to Genealogy Trails
Volunteers working to put free historical data online.


If you have the desire to help transcribe genealogical data and place it online for the free use of all researchers, contact Nancy to become a host. Volunteer Information is available here.

This County currently does not have a host. This means that there is no one available to help answer your questions about this county's history or to help you with your family's genealogy within this county. WE REGRET THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO DO PERSONAL RESEARCH FOR YOU.
