Share your Genealogy Records


Here you can share census, cemetery, birth, death, marriage, court, bible records, obituaries, etc. to the free genealogy databases. You will be given full credit for your submission and your records will ALWAYS be FREE access for others.

Please make certain when submitting items that they are transcribed accurately and that they are not under copyright. We ask that you do not submit second-hand information unless you are certain of its accuracy. You may submit transcripts of the information or copies of the originals, which we will transcribe for you.
