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

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.

You never know what’s lurking in family tree

I’ve never really been interested in tracing my family’s genealogy like many of my friends. I’m too afraid of what I might discover about my ancestors. You never can tell what scoundrels you might find lurking in the branches of your family tree – horse thieves, mobsters, serial killers and, heaven forbid, even politicians. Gasp!

Actually, I am allegedly kin, on my father’s side of the family, to a long-dead, famous politician – I prefer to call him a statesman. But I have no documentation to prove it, only the claims of puffed-up kinfolk at family reunions held in the Old Dominion State of Virginia. They swear that Patrick Henry of “Give me liberty, or give me death” fame is our cousin.

Census Records

A census is an official enumeration of the population in a particular area.

Each census can prove to be invaluable in painting a portrait of a family at a particular place and time.

Birth Marriage & Death records -

Civil vital records—for Births, Marriage and Deaths —mark the milestones of our lives, and are the foundation of family history research. Chronicling the personal moments of our lives through the objective perspective of the public record, vital records can offer details often found through no other genealogical resource. They can be useful in proving or disproving other sources, give you a more complete picture of your ancestor, help you distinguish between two people with the same name, and help you find clues to earlier life events.

With these records, you can gain access to information regarding your ancestor's lives, such as the locations and causes of their deaths, the names of children or parents, their wedding dates and locations, and the many other details that help us record and remember the important moments in the lives of our families.
