Welcome to the Guam Project at Trails To The Past

Welcome

to 

Guam

Guam's Flag

Welcome to the Guam website which is hosted by Trails To The Past.

My name is Charlie Vines and I am the temporary host for Guam. If you would be interested in adopting Guam  or one of the other U.S. Territories, please contact me.  If you would be interested in joining our group in an area other than the U. S. Territories, you can contact me or  contact the District Coordinator for the area you would be interested in by visiting our District Map.

If you find any errors on this site or if you would like to contribute to this project, please contact me.


Although I do host this site, I do not live in this territory; therefore, my ability to assist with any research will be extremely limited.  I will be adding a volunteer page in the future.  This will provide everyone researching this county to help each other.
