Genealogy Trails



 Our goal is helping you find your ancestors by placing data online for the FREE use of all researchers. 

We need help with contributions of your data, history and stories to make this a great site for research.  Everything is helpful: Obituaries, Biographies, Marriage/Birth/Death/Burial records, County History data, etc. Any of the "raw" data YOU used to build your family tree.

  As data becomes available, we put it online on its corresponding county's page.  Information will be posted as fast as we can find, type and/or receive it.  We welcome your feedback and comments, and of course, your data contributions.

If you have data to contribute to our effort, please email me.

I'm sorry, we are unable to perform personal research for you.


This County is available for adoption!

If you have a love of genealogy and history, a desire to help others, and basic web-authoring skills, consider joining our team of dedicated volunteers!
