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.

Mayflower Families (Through the Looking Glass)

This site has quite a few original documents that have been scanned and are available primarily in the document center area. Other areas of the site include text transcripts.

www.mayflowerfamilies.com/documentcenter/

The Document Center houses many New England And Miscellaneous Early American Documents. You'll find document scans of wills, deeds, land transfers, warrants and others. They consist primarily of documents found at auction and according to the web site "are included here in the hopes that the genealogical content will be of value to users." So, what you'll find is quite at random and often quite rare. But it's worth a visit.
Here's the link to the main site.
