101 of the Best Free Genealogy Sites

101 free genealogy sites

Free Family Tree Resources

All links revised and updated October 2016

Instead of spending hours searching the Internet for free genealogy websites, use this guide to shortcut your search.

This book is really much more than just a list of 101 websites! I ended up reading it, much in the same way that you’d read a novel, instead of just using it as a directory. I really recommend this book for people just starting to research, but I’d also recommend it for even the most experienced genealogist. (Read the entire review here)

Use the Same Sites as an Internet Genealogy Expert

This guide contains 101 of the best websites for free genealogy. This guide was researched, tested and compiled by  foremost Internet genealogy expert, Nancy Hendrickson. Using her years of online experience, Nancy has put together her favorite and most-used free sites. Each of the first 50 sites include an Overview, of the site an explanation of Why This Site, and a suggested Search Strategy.

How The Guide is Organized

Sites are grouped by:

  • military
  • social history
  • immigration
  • databases
  • odds ‘n ends

This guide contains links to free databases or great statewide information for each of the 50 states n addition to Nancy’s “favorite 50” sites. And, because some sites are just too good to be left out, you’ll find another 10 (bringing the total to 111) that Nancy couldn’t do without in her own research.

Don’t Waste Your Precious Research Time

Can you find all of these sites on your own without this guide? Absolutely! But why spend YOUR time finding free sites when you could be finding ancestors!
