We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online
and are interested in helping this project be as successful as we can make it.
If you are interested joining our group as County Host for this website, or any of our websites, view our Volunteer Information
page and Email Kim.
A desire to transcribe data and know-how to make a basic webpage is required.
In the meantime, we'd be very happy to accept any data you'd care
to contribute and would like to see displayed on this site. We're looking for "raw data" - the birth/death/marriage
records, obituaries, cemetery headstone readings, biographies, county histories, census data, pensions and other
military data. In short, we'd like to display all the items you used to put together your family tree (rather than
the tree itself).
Email your transcribed data to us and we'll take care of putting
