Trails to the Past

GAIL'S CORNER

Well, we are over two years as a project with new information being added daily. We have some faithful volunteers who are bringing you tales that you can't find in county or state files. Trails is trying to bring you information that Grandma had stored in the attic.

We are always looking for volunteers, but I also wanted to let you know that our volunteers will also help you with your research. If it is not on their county web pages, they will try and find the information if they live near the location of their county. As with others, they do not live in or near the county and are unable to help you, but it never hurts to ask, as someone may know someone who can help.

We hope you enjoy Trails to the Past, and come back more often.  Gail

WELCOME...

...the newest genealogy venture that we hope you will take on the "Trails to the Past" with us.  We are still in the process of selecting volunteers to host our state and county projects.  If you are interested please email the administrator of the state or district you are interested in and send us a resume of your qualifications using FTP and writing HTML along with any sites you might have on the Internet. District Administrators can be contacted here.  State Administrators can be contacted through this page

 

DECIDED TO JOIN US AND HOST A STATE OR COUNTY?

If you adopt a state or a county, the web space that you get from Rootsweb is your website. You have the passwords to the site and you maintain what goes on the site. You own the copyright to any information you add to the site and your submitters own the copyright for whatever they add to the site. Trails to the Past only hold the copyright on what we put on our National pages.

 

WANT TO HELP BUT DO NOT WANT TO HOST?

If you are good at graphics, perhaps you love to transcribe and or have a love of photographing gravestones.  Maybe you have some ideas of what you would like to do that is not already being done, like a special project such as census records, ship arrivals, trails heading west, the Trail of Tears, old newspapers and there are many more historical subjects out there that we can add for a variety - old postcards, old pictures of long-gone locations, ghost towns.  The list can go on and on.
