GENEALOGY AND HISTORY SITES THAT ARE FREE TO ACCESS AND FREE TO USE

Hard to find but free places where you can research genealogy on line, without having to pay. Your comments and feedback are welcome to any post.

About me: Jerry E. Reed
First and foremost, I am a seasoned voice talent and media/public relations specialist with many other interests. I have been helping businesses with their narrations, presentations, commercials, and more all of my adult life.

I am also a genealogist, a
n avid photographer, and artisan bread baker.
My genealogy interest began before personal computers were a family "must have." Personal genealogy computer research has blossomed in the past 15 years. It wasn't long before someone decided that they could charge for information that should be free and in the public domain. I have always been frustrated by that. Now, thousands and thousands of pages of useful facts are coming on line daily in free-to-access digital archives located all over the world. So, I'm constantly searching for new sources of free on line material. Blog updates follow this section and all links are added to the master list below the new posts.
Updates are posted when
I discover another new source or when something I have already reviewed gets a major update.
Have fun and enjoy.
Note: if you find a link no longer works, please let me know so I can research and update it.

City of Rochester NY Marriage Index

The City of Rochester New York offers an index called the Historic Marriage Records Research Site. You can search marriage records for the city from 1876 through 1932. The index is free, as are the results. If you want to purchase an offical copy of the actual record, that's an additional charge and must be ordered. However, the information is free to access and free to use.
Here's the link:

Hello, this new site really helped with my search of family history. I live in Raleigh, NC and this saved me tons of research from a long distance. Next time I'm home, I can do less research and enjoy family, parks, restaurants and shops. Thanks for a great website.

It would be nice if the link worked. You need to remove this site!
