Genealogy and Ancestry– How to search the internet for your Family Tree History

Genealogy and Ancestry– How to search the internet for your Family Tree History


If you ever wanted to research your family tree and trace your ancestry, the internet has made this much easier than ever before.  There are both paid websites and free websites that let you search birth records, military records, immigration records and other information as well.

If you are new to researching your family tree, you will see how complex it can become.  It becomes necessary to research your family tree back as far as you can with your living relatives and then you can further add to it by searching on the internet from there.


Books can help in teaching you how to go about tracing the family tree, and also to help document the history as you go.  It often can become an encompassing hobby for many and to some an important quest for information.

You may want to see if a local genealogical society exists in your area.  You can learn how to track down your family tree through others that have already done so.  Genealogical societies can be interesting to learn about the history of times gone by at the same time.

Rootsweb is a free search for tracking down your family surname with a search engine database. HeritageQuest Online is another website that is usually offered free if you have a membership at the local library.  You can search records from 1790 to 1930 based on the head of household.  You cannot subscribe for the site as an individual, so you would either need to find a library or a genealogical society that subscribes to the service.


Another way to track down your ancestry is by attending a specific genealogy convention.  The Mormons have a center devoted for the research of your ancestors because of their belief in saving their relatives that has already passed on.  They have a Family History Library dedicated to the research of family ancestry.  Their website for more information is ancestorseekers.com.

Another website that searches cemetery records for free is interment.net.  It searches internationally over 3 million records for over 5,000 cemeteries.

WorldGenWeb is a free internet search of genealogy records that began back in 1996 and covers the whole world.  Each state has a specific website that breaks down to the county level.  It helps navigate through to search for birth and death records.  Some states that do not disclose the information online will inform you how to go about obtaining the information.


There are also paid subscription sites that may make it easier to do the research.  Ancestry.com offers a free trial period to try out the service before paying.
