Genealogy Trails


Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy
 

Our goal at Genealogy Trails 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. We welcome your feedback, comments, and data contributions.

We regret that we are unable to perform personal research for folks!
All data we come across will be added to this site.
We thank you for visiting and hope you'll come back again to view the updates we make to this site.


Hello, my name is Nancy Piper and I am your West Virginia state host.

If you have data that you would like to have posted on this website, please
email me
