Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy

We here at Genealogy Trails are dedicated to bringing you free and accurate information that we hope brings you closer to solving your family tree mysteries! My name is Therman Kellar and I will be your Calhoun County West Virginia host! You can reach me here! ! We gladly appriciate any information you may have, or would like to see on here. I do however, regret that we do not do personal research for you.
Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by transcribing genealogical and historical data for the free use of all researchers.

We're looking for folks who share our dedication to putting data online and are interested in helping this project be as successful as it can be. If you are interested in joining Genealogy Trails, view our
Volunteer Page for further information and then email Nancy. (Enough knowledge to make a basic webpage and a desire to transcribe data is required)


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.

If you would like to be kept informed of our state and county website updates, subscribe to any or all of our mailing lists
West Virginia is covered under our "Northeastern States" mailing list.
