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!

We're looking for DATA for our sites!!!

We would very much like to make you part of this project.

If you have information that you'd like to share about any town, family, county or subject,
please Send it to Us and we'll make sure it gets posted to this site.


Types of Data We're Looking to Post

Send transcribed biographies, obituaries, vital records, census records, newspaper gleanings,
military records, or if you have walked cemeteries and have transcribed those names and dates,
and any other type of data you think would be helpful to researchers    


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.
