Welcome to Karnes County Texas Genealogy Trails!
*Volunteers dedicated to putting free data online*

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 Karnes County Website
is available for adoption.

If you have a love for history, a desire to help others, and basic web-authoring skills, consider joining us! Get the details on our Volunteer Page. If hosting isn't for you, we can use your help in other ways.
[A desire to transcribe data and knowledge of how to make a basic webpage is required.]


We regret that we are unable to
perform personal research for anybody.
