Helpful Genealogy Search Links

  2. GenServ - has an extensive collection of GEDCOM databases, with one free search per E-Mail address.
  3. Family Tree Maker index which has a search facility that may give you some really useful leads.
  4. Kindred Konnections - 12 million name index search and SSDI. Name search must have surname and given name; loads of cookies.
  5. Obituary Daily Times has loads of Obituaries from around the world, and has a search facility. When using the search wait for completion - the title loads first then the data takes some time.

58.  Roots Surname List is a database of surnames submitted by researchers. It contains well over 100,000 surnames. The database contains the surname, locations, and dates along with information on how to contact the researcher who submitted the entry. You can search this large database online.

  4. Traveller Southern Families - dedicated to the Southern States of the United States.
  5. UK Look-Up Scheme - not online records, but folk who are willing to check out references listed on these pages. Embryonic but looks like it will become a very good secondary resource.
