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

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.

USGenweb

USGenweb has been around for many years and the material that is found on line through its links is vast. Thousands of volunteers in counties throughout the U.S. and many localities around the world have been contributing documents to the USGenweb project. On the various local sites you'll find cemetery lists, vital statistics and local history information. Having been a county coordinator for many years for two counties in New York I can honestly say that much of the material is genuine, but not immune from typos, errors and omissions. So, beware.
