FREE WEBSITES TO AID RESEARCH

 

Family Tree Magazine link to free sites:

National Genealogical Society

In addition to Ancestry.com and newspapers.com, which require a paid subscription, below are websites that I constantly use.  Be careful of Ancestry trees, as that info is only as good as the “researcher” who submitted it.

  • www.FamilySearch.org  You will have to set up an account.

  • www.findagrave.com  I would caution you not to use information from this site unless there is a headstone with dates or an obituary.

  • www.fold3.com   Free from Cincinnati Library to card holders.  Military records.

  • www.probatect.org    Hamilton County, Ohio court-records › archive-categories, including early marriages.  This site is sometimes a bit tricky to use.

  • www.nps.gov  Database for Andersonville, Georgia prisoners.

  • www.chroniclingamerica   Source for newspapers.

  • www.archives.gov National archives record forms

In addition, search:

  • Funeral home websites for obituaries.

  • Historical and Genealogy Societies in area you are searching.

  • If burial info is not available at findagrave, contact local cemeteries for information.
