Hi, my name is Mike Ward and I'm the host of the Ellis County, Kansas GenWeb. I can help you post queries on the Ellis County KSGenWeb site but I can't help you with any local research because I don't live in or near Ellis county.
If you need someone to do local research, you might want to contact one of the societies in Ellis county. Information about those societies is available at http://www.fhsu.edu/forsyth_lib/genealogy_9.htm.
If you'd like to help contribute to this Web site, would like to submit a query, or would like to to be placed on the Ellis County Surname List, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org but remember, I can't help you with any local research because I don't live in or near Ellis county.
