We're looking for DATA for this site!!!
We're looking for the "raw data" folks can use to build their family trees (rather than the actual trees
themselves). This includes the transcribed data from the vital records, biographies from the county histories as
well as the county history information itself, transcriptions of obituaries, burial data from cemetery trompings
and/or readings, the data from military pensions and other service records; enumerations from census years, any
newspaper gleanings for the family members including birth announcements, marriage announcements, death notices/obits
and anything in between.
To help us get the data online quickly, it's very helpful to send the data transcribed
(rather than sending in a graphic)
