Thank you for adding one more url to my list that I already have. I've found that most of them are very useful, and have learned over the years to check everything listed on any of the sites before going further. Sending for microfilms from the library on www.familysearch.org has helped. Still I'm looking for my Conway relatives, and see that I must once again send away for more info again so perhaps I'll find them. My Irish & Scottish ancestors came to the US abt 1840.

Thanks for the links there, Rose. My own geneological journey has been timultuous but I think with your help I can rest easy!

Again, thanks!

EMTQueen.... the main ones I know that are free to start off with are

Rootsweb.com
cousinconnect.com
mytrees.com
gencircles.com
familysearch.org (LDS church)

but the further you go into your search in these sites, they will all charge at some point. Genealogy can be a very expensive task. wink.gif smile.gif

Just check out very carefully what ever you gleen from the web, some times fiction is included. If you can't hold or get a good photo copy of documentation ( even that can be forged now ) beware. I have been lead down some roads that turned out to be fictious but good research using documents soon showed the truth.

Very good point, Shadows. I was also told this by one of my cousins who has done most of the research in our family:

"too many people want to be the family "experts" when, in reality, all they do is copy what someone else said and never check to determine whether it's true. Let me suggest a little test to apply to anything you find on the Internet ... does the information include the documentation? If it doesn't include the documentation, then real genealogists (I'm definitely still an amateur) would deem it useless and nothing more than "gossip." The only way to find the documentation is by sheer hard work. What my small group does a lot is prove many things by actually disproving even more."

I thought this was great advice too. wink.gif

Just want to add one little thing, Ròs!

Lots of states now have their archives online, or are at least in the process of getting them. If you know what state you're looking for you can google the states archive department! I have found a lot of info this way!

They also have contact info on the sites so you can send for any documentation you find (for a small fee, of course!) And they will send you copies!

I feel more trusting of these than some other reasearch sites!

That's just MHO anyway!!!

Really, Sonee?! ohmy.gif I never thought of that. I wonder if my cousins have done that already. I will have to check with them and see. Right now they are doing most of the work. biggrin.gif Thanks for advice!

We've had a bit of luck posting on the surname discussion boards on www.ancestry.com in the past... I check on my Gore maiden name there.

The genealogy.com web site is pretty good too. Earlier this year we got Family Tree Maker 2005 from them and now have it online at:

http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users...n-Gore-Gardner/

It does not show the information as easily as I would like, its in one of those huge tree formats, but I have turned it all over to my husband & my dad to sort out. I've got my fingers in enough pies, I don't have time to try to figure out this thing too!

SB! some people really like Genealogy.com. For me, I cancelled it cause every time I was just about to get somewhere, I would have to pay more money for the information and even then it would lead me to where I would have to pay even more for more info. It got very frustrating to me. good luck!

Hey, no kiddin' - I never got any farther than the free membership, other than getting the Family Tree software to put all our family history info on to.
Dad, on the other hand, really got into the research stuff heavy a little over a year ago. I didn't know it at the time, but he went pretty far with it and paid for access to some old records... I don't know specifically which ones but he hinted not long ago that he spent not only a lot of time but a bit of cash too on his search.

But for him it apparently was worth it, because he was able to fill in some gaps in our history.

I can't afford to do that kind of thing!!! Starving artists have to be careful with their mooh-lah.
