Searching Online for Your Ancestors


Before paying a subscription website for records of your ancestors, you should always check to see if the records exist somewhere on the internet for free. The Genealogy Search Engine searches over 3.2 billion free ancestral records spread over thousands of different websites. It is a fast, convenient and powerful way to find records of your ancestors.

Complement Google Searches

We view the Genealogy Search Engine as a complement to Google search. Google provides unprecedented coverage of every website in the world. This broad coverage, however, can present issues for genealogists looking for ancestral records. Fundamentally, Google can not distinguish between a living person and an ancestor. Since there are many more living people on the internet than ancestors, Google search results can be overwhelmed by records of living people. The Genealogy Search Engine avoids this issue because it focuses solely on ancestral records.
