Genealogy Trails.... "Always Free, Always Updating."

 

 

 

Genealogy Trails is an independent group of volunteers, not affiliated with any for-profit group. We fund and support our own needs, and our purpose for existing is to place data online for the FREE use of all researchers.

Our group was formed back in March of 2000, by providing data for the state of Illinois, and six years later, we expanded to cover the other 49 states.

We welcome your feedback.
