When you register your surname, we will automatically and continuously search for any updated records or new listings that involve any members of your extended family tree or your ancestry. You will be sent instant notification by email when new information is available regarding your family tree. Your complete genealogy data is also always available from any Windows or Mac computer with an Internet connection. So take this opportunity to dig up your past and ensure your children know their ancestors.
Explore Your Family Tree and Geneology
Tip: If you don't know an ancestor's parents, but know one of the ancestor's children, use the
child's name for the First Name and Last Name below (and spouse, birth, and
death) and then enter the ancestor as the Father or Mother. This gives more
information for building a search.
Common Problems Using Search Engines for Genealogy
Have you tried to find your ancestry on any
search engine? If so, you might have
had thousands of results, most of which did not
apply to your genealogy. This site minimizes this problem by suggesting
more complex ways of
looking for your ancestors that will provide you
with better results.
Many Names are Common
One problem with using any search engine for genealogy is that many last names
are common. For example, take the last name of
"Hall." Using Hall genealogy will often result in more than 500,000 results. The first ones on
the list might be best, but you run the risk of missing some results because
there are so many. This site will suggest combinations or patterns of names to
minimize the number of results and provide you with better results.
Some Words That Have Similar Meanings
Another aspect of using Hall genealogy is that it would miss selecting sites that use a
different word that means the same thing. Family
history, family tree, and ancestry are just a few words that
have a meaning similar to genealogy. Finally, you need consider common
misspellings, such as geneology. This site will automatically
create searches that account for words with similar meanings to the term genealogy.
Words That Have Different Meanings
"Hall" is also used in the name of buildings
as "Durham Hall") or in common phrases (such as
"she walked down
the hall"). This site will suggest combinations
or patterns of names in order to minimize the likelihood of these
