Thank you for visiting our site. This is going to be a very exciting year for us as we launch our new, and greatly improved, website.
We have articles of interest, blank genealogy forms, and member stories, on a variety of topics.
Check out our links page. We have provided links to the archives of all fifty states plus the District of Columbia, Library of Congress, and the National Archives. When you go to the state archives list please be patient. Some of these pages are quite large and take a second to load.
All links have been checked and are working but if ever you find a broken link, please, do not hesitate to contact us.
We also will have links to many free, and mostly free, websites. Additionally, there are country specific links and topical links. And, we promise you that there are many more to come in the next few days.

Also coming soon we will have fast facts, blogs, forums, and a section called "Take a Break" for when you need a little lift during your research.
It is our desire that you join us for a little or a lot as your time allows. And, certainly, if you have suggestions we would love to hear them.
We hope that you find something, or many things, that spark your interest and that you visit us again as we will be regularly adding new material.
So, grab a cup of tea, browse through our offerings, and enjoy!
Who Do You Think You Are Season Finale
If you missed Bryan Cranston researching his paternal family tree on Sunday, August 23, you have a second chance to watch on Sunday, August 30, at 8PM EDT/ 7PM CDT on TLC. In fact there will be a mini marathon of past and current favorite episodes of WDYTYA running from 2PM until Bryan Cranston at 8PM.
Then stay tuned as this season wraps up at 9PM with Tom Bergeron as he explores his French Canadian roots. I'm sure many of us will find that we share common ancestors with Tom.
And, after all of this, should you want more of WDYTYA you can always view clips and full episodes from previous seasons by clicking on "Links" on this page and then clicking on our new "On TV" button on the categories page.
