My own 4-generation pedigree chart. And my paternal grandparents. Aren’t they cute?

 

 

Are you ready to explore your family history?

Here are some resources I’ve gathered for you, in the following categories, to help you get started:

  • Org4lilfe Services
  • Org4life Blog Posts
  • Related Resource Roundups
  • Programs for Your Computer
  • Free Research Websites
  • Paid Research Websites
  • Tools & Forms
  • Books
  • Blogs (other people’s)
  • Podcasts
  • Videos
  • Facebook Groups
  • Conferences
  • Webinars
  • Libraries
  • DIY Family Website

This list is by no means exhaustive!  (I also don’t want to overwhelm you.) It’s mostly a list of websites and tools I use myself. (If you want exhaustive, check out Cyndi’s List below.)

Please let me know if you find something here that helps you!

And, if you can’t find what you’re looking for, just ask!

(There’s a search box on my blog.)

Programs for Your Computer

  • Family Tree Maker (this is one I use)

  • There are lots more perfectly good programs, but those two are very popular and they both sync with Ancestry.
