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.

California's San Fernando Valley Digital Archives

The Oviatt Library at the Californian State University at Northridge has several collections that are worthy of consideration as genealogy sources.  Two collections in particular stand out: San Fernando Valley History Digital Library and Latino Cultural Heritage Digital Archives. The first contains, images and historical documents from public and private collections in the San Fernando Valley. It covers the valley from the early 19th century through the end of the 20th century. The Latino digital collection is a portion of a larger collection at the library  and provides access to materials that "document the experiences of Latino/Chicano leaders and organizations of the Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley area."
