Free Public Records Sites

Best Free Web Sites for Public Records to track tree / history?

I'll paste my standard response below. You should know that no matter YA to click – and Australia, Canada, YA, etc – all questions in English comes in a large pot, and get read by people all over the world. Therefore, talking about a country in question. "Best" depends, USA Gen Web is great if you are researching in the U.S.. Free BMD is very good for the United Kingdom. Not much about the genealogy of China on the web, and it is difficult to read. Here's my stock answer: These questions arise every day: Where I can find my family tree for free? Does anyone know the {} of the family surname? What are good sites for ancestors / genealogy? This is to trace your family tree online. The fourth time I've written in my early favorite links, I realized that I save a text file and paste them in. This is long and comprehensive. Because it is general, not all links will apply to all the questions or question. These can help you get started. They are great and free. Many of them however, subtle ads for Ancestry.com in them – ads that ask for a name, then offer a trial subscription. Watch the ads. http://www.cyndislist.com/ (240,000 + links, all cross-indexed. If you want Welsh or Pennsylvania Dutch or Oregon or any other region, ethnic group or surname, chances are she has links to it.) Http: / / www.familysearch.com (Mormon mega-site. Click "Search") http://worldconnect.genealogy.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/ igm.cgi (460 000 000 + entries, of varying quality) http://www.ancestry.com/learn/facts/default. aspx? ln = http://www.tedpack.org/begingen.html Surname meanings and origins My own website: "Getting Started" in the U.S. alone: ??http://www.usgenweb.net/ (split sites of the state, all have sites county.) (The Canadians have Canadian Gen Web, by province) http://ssdi.genealogy.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/ssdi.cgi (Social Security Death Index – click on "Options Advanced "you can find your grandparents) http://find.person.superpages.com/ (USA Phone book to find distant cousins) United States. Only Kingdom: http://www.genuki.org.uk / (The largest site for UK and Ireland) http://www.freebmd.org.uk/ (free documents, birth, marriage and death) (If you sent your question on the genealogy ignore this paragraph. If published in the "Family" category, read on.) Track your tree is called genealogy. YA has a category for genealogy, Home> Arts & Humanities> Genealogy There are hundreds of links in the responses unresolved. Notes: Generally, you have to do some research. Sometimes you get lucky. Do not give up if your grandfather with your surname is not there. Try all eight great-grandparents. You will not find people in any of the sites except the phone book. You will not find many people born after 1920 in any of the sites except the SSDI one. Genealogists hide dates birth, place of birth and other information on the lives of people protect their privacy. You have to find their grandparents or great grandparents' birth dates and maiden name somewhere besides the Internet. The free sites are supported by advertising, like TV. You can not watch the Super Bowl without seeing a commercial for beer, and you can not surf for dead relatives without seeing an ad ancestry. Many people complain about the ads. Please, no. They lead to "free" sites. There is no such thing as a lunch free. If you seriously need a genealogy program. They are on family research what "Word" is writing a novel. I like Roots Magic. Family Tree Maker is the market leader. Both cost about $ 29. Mormons will let you download PAF for free. It is awkward, but it's free. Sometimes you can find versions FTM or family old Origins (FOR is the predecessor of RM) in the bargain bins at Costco.
