CONNECT WITH ANCESTORS FamilySearch.org has 1,000,000 names added to files daily. It is my first choice of free researching for ancestors.
The 72-year wait is over. On April 1, 1940, there were 132,164,569 people living in America. And today, 87 percent of Americans can find a direct family link to one -- or more -- of them. When the 1940 U.S. Federal Census is opened to the public this April, you'll have a window into every one of those 132 million lives. Their names, where they lived, who shared their house, even where they were five years earlier. For more information, head to www.ancestry.com/...
Some Genealogy Records Have No Names - We get so used to searching for people in our family tree by name, that it might not even occur to us to search for them without a name. Join Crista Cowan as she shares some specific examples of instances when people are not recorded by name. She'll share search tips and tricks so you can find those records. Then, she will show you how those records are still of great genealogical value.
