Free Genealogy Research Sites
Searching for your family line? This free genealogy section from Entertainment Magazine provides a launching point to other family history genealogy sites with search engines, databases and other tools.
You can do a comprehensive genealogy search for your family roots through our links. Many of these sites also update their databases and information often. Technology is making it possible to quickly add vast amounts of information online in searchable databases. Some, though, is only available in image (.jpg) formats. These are the original records scanned and digitized. Some webs have text searchable capabilities to locate some of the image information.
Recently, 25 million Ellis Island passenger travel records have been added to the ellisisland.org web site.
