Pamela Cooper, a local genealogist, recently wrote to us with a recommendation for online research that she’d like to share.
I was always very curious about my family tree, particularly my dad’s side of the family, who I really didn’t know. Information like this is often freely available, but you have to go from website to website to accumulate all of that information. I found it a tedious process!
But then I found www.FreeAncestrySearch.org and it was like a dream come true. Suddenly there was one resource that could connect me to all of the various government offices and could help me dig up information about my father’s family. I found it pretty easy to find what I needed and I didn’t have to pay anything. I figured it could help visitors to your site if you added it as a resource.
Just thought I’d share!
It looks like a good tool for family research in the US and we’ve added it to our Links & References page. We’re always interested to know what research tools and tricks you’ve used lately – for researching family, architecture, local history and beyond.
