The Best FREE Genealogy Searches on the web! 

The following sites have been selected by us as the best free sources of genealogy information.  These sites are the first places I check when searching for genealogy data and I have made a lot of connections in all of these.  My favorite search links!  As with all genealogy data found from other sources, be sure to verify it yourself.  Just because you find it in writing, do not accept it at face value.  Everyone makes errors and they abound on our genealogy hiway!  With that said, these are the best places to check first and all completely FREE.  
Be sure to try various spellings of the names you are searching for.
Good luck and Happy Searchin'

County Maps

County maps to help you locate counties and boundaries.  This is all important!  When you locate your ancestors in a county, you should search all surrounding counties for census and genealogy records.  Many times people did business in surrounding counties especially if they were closer to a court house in an adjoining county.


 If you know the city and state, just plug them in here and it will tell you what county that city is in.
