Other Valuable Databases

The internet contains a wealth of information and makes it easy to contact and stay in touch with others who might be working on your family roots. Whether you are experienced or a novice in tracing your family roots using the Internet, these personally-reviewed and singled-out-for-excellence web sites will empower you in your search for your treasured family heritage.

A virtual treasure trove of empowering, irreplaceable knowledge and information – much of which had been essentially “lost” to mankind in dusty archives around the world – is now instantly available to you at your fingertips at any time.

We are living in exciting times because old records are being indexed to electronic formats at an ever increasing rate.

This is changing family history dramatically. An enormous number of old records still exist which are very difficult to research right now because they have not been digitized, but sometime in the future essentially all old records will be converted to electronic formats. This means that we will most likely be able to connect with ancestors and solve family history problems in the near future that may still be very difficult today.
