GenealogyInTime Magazine is the fifth largest free genealogy website in the world (according to Alexa the internet traffic source). People like our website because we are independent and we provide valuable, honest information. We are also much more than just an online magazine. We are a genealogy platform with tools and resources to help people find their ancestors.
It also helps that we are free.
Philosophy – We have a passion for genealogy and a determination to make it better. Our mission is to help people find their ancestors.

How We Help the Genealogy Community
In addition to providing a free online genealogy magazine, there are several other ways we help the genealogy community:
Copy Requests – We sometimes receive requests for permission to copy one of our Articles for newsletters of non-profit genealogy societies. We are always happy to help genealogy societies and we almost always say yes. Please contact us at our main email address firstname.lastname@example.org and provide us with as much detail as possible about your request.
Use of Images - You are welcome to download one of our Free Images free of charge for your own personal use.
We also have a very generous policy if you want to use one of our images on your website/blog. You can use up to three of our images on your website/blog without having to ask us for permission provided that:
1. Your website is for non-commercial use (such as a blog, non-profit educational project, non-profit genealogy society or personal genealogy website).
2. You understand that we continue to own the copyright to the image.
3. You include the following text and hyperlink next to each image:

We will consider such requests if we think it will benefit the broader genealogy community. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide us with as much detail as possible.
