Genealogy Research Ideas
Genealogy on the internet gives us an entirely new set of
tools to utilize for genealogy research. No longer is it necessary
to travel great distances to find resources in libraries--you now have a
library in your home. It is easier to locate and contact others
researching your line. Census images are now online, and others
can be ordered online and received the next day or two. Additionally, there are other resources available on the internet that
can be easily adapted to genealogy use and provide ways to easily share
your research, photos, and thoughts with others.
Here you will find tips
for utilizing some of those new tools to enhance your research and ideas
