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.

Yukon Genealogy

My first exposure to the Yukon was a TV program I watched as youngster - Sgt. Preston of the Yukon (and his wonder dog King). I also once owned one square inch of land in the Yukon complements of Quaker Oats.  I guess the deeds were never filed, so my fortune in Yukon gold is long gone.  But there were many that went west to find gold in the Yukon.  This site "follows the lives of those who came after the Klondike stampede." Yukon Archives includes material from the Dawson Museum and other records of the brave people that settled there. The site makes available a search engine that draws from eight separate databases. They have been compiling this data since 2002.
