Resources

Over many years of searching for long-lost cousins on the web, these are the sites that I keep coming back to year after year:

Family Trees

  • Ancestry - billions of searchable records and family trees
  • FamilySearch - free LDS resources that are very extensive
  • Geni - the collaborative World Family Tree where everyone is related
  • WikiTree - a quickly growing free family tree to connect the entire human family
  • MyHeritage - parent company of Geni, with great research and integration tools
  • Findmypast - over a billion records from the British Isles

Tools

Cemetaries

  • Find a Grave - find the graves of your ancestors in over 100 million grave records
  • BillionGraves - join the worldwide effort by uploading, transcribing, or searching
