Genealogy Help

Perhaps you're fascinated by the idea of learning about your family history, but don't know where to begin. Maybe you've interviewed your grandfather, poured over dusty records and traipsed through cemeteries. What next?

Either way, you're in luck. The Internet is an excellent tool for researching your roots.

The search for information can seem overwhelming at first, but several sites simplify the process:

Once you get the ball rolling, try more comprehensive sites. At Genealogy.com, you can order family tree software, read articles by experts, delve into an online data library and find lots of tips. Their "Ask the Genealogist" column clears up the mystery of the second cousin, twice removed. Visit Access Genealogy: The Genealogy Web Portal for links to a variety of information and records, including archives, libraries, biographies, cemeteries and voting records. You can also start your own MyFamily website.




Additional Tools

  • FamilySearch.org
    This popular site from the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-Day Saints offers a robust ancestor search tool.

Start Networking

One of the most amazing things about using the Internet to research your roots is the ability to network with other researchers. FamilyHistory.com hosts over 100,000 family history message boards devoted to surnames and other genealogy-related topics.

If you can't find what you're looking for, head to Cyndi's List of Genealogical Sites on the Internet. Cyndi offers more than 69,000 links in over 120 categories, including Cyndi's Genealogy Home Page Construction Kit.
