Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy

This Site is Available for Adoption

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.

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.
[A desire to transcribe data and knowledge of how to make a basic webpage is required.]

Dust off your family scrapbooks!
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).

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

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.
