Anybody have some good genealogy/ancestry internet sources?

I'm doing a family tree/genealogy/ancestry project in school, but I can't find anything to use as an internet source. Anybody have a NON-PAYMENT and NON-SUSCRIBAL source that I could look up?

    The links in my standard answer are all free. Many of them have subtle ads for in them - ads that ask for a name, then offer a trial subscription. Watch out for them.

    Before I paste it, a word. I have been doing genealogy for 30 years. Even with the Internet, it would take me 20 - 30 hours to do a good family tree for someone alive today in the USA. That's two hours a night for two weeks, minimum. I'd need longer if I had to write off for obituaries. Teachers who haven't done it give these ridiculous assignments out all the time.

    So - lie. Pick some likely sounding people and claim them as your great grandparents. Just keep the general migration pattern westward (Virginia -> Tennessee -> Texas or New York -> Ohio -> Kansas) and keep an average of 33 years between generations; that is, if someone "has" five kids, make sure #3 is born when the mom is about 33 years old.

    Here's the stock answer. Ignore the parts about buying a genealogy program:

    I hope you'll accept a general answer. These questions come up every day:

    Where can I find my family tree for free?

    Does anyone know the {Surname} family?

    What are good sites for ancestors / genealogy?

    They are all about tracing your family tree on the Internet. The fourth time I typed in my favorite beginner's links I realized I should save them in a text file and paste them in. This is long and general. Because it is general, not all the links will apply to every question or questioner.

    These may help get you started. They are large and free.

    (240,000+ links, all cross-indexed. If you want Welsh or Pennsylvania Dutch or Oregon or any other region, ethnic group or surname, chances are she has links for it.)

    (Mormon's mega-site. Click on "Search")

    (460,000,000+ entries, of varying quality)

    Surname meanings and origins

    My own site: "How to Begin"

    United States only:

    (Subdivided into state sites, which all have county sites.)

    (The Canadians have Canadian Gen Web, by province)

    (Social Security Death index - click on "Advanced" You may find your grandparents.)

    (US Phone book, for looking up distant cousins)

    United Kingdom Only:

    (Biggest site for United Kingdom & Ireland)

    (Free Birth, Marriage & Death Records)

    (If you posted your question in Genealogy, ignore this paragraph. If you posted it in the "Family" category, read on.)

    Tracing your family tree is called genealogy. YA has a category for genealogy,

    There are hundreds of more links in the resolved answers there.


    You usually have to do some research. Sometimes you get lucky. Don't give up if your Great grandfather with your surname isn't there. Try all eight great-grandparents.

    You won't find living people on any of the sites except the phone book one. You won't find many people born after 1920 on any of the sites except the SSDI one. Genealogists hide the birth dates, birth places and other facts of living people to protect their privacy. You will have to find your grandparents' or great grandparents' birth dates and maiden names somewhere besides the Internet.

    The free sites are supported by advertising, just like TV. You can't watch the Super Bowl without seeing a beer commercial, and you can't surf for dead relatives without seeing an Ancestry advertisement. Many people complain about advertisements. Please don't. They bring you the "free" sites. There's no such thing as a free lunch.

    If you get serious you'll need a genealogy program. They are to family research what "Word" is to writing a novel. I like Roots Magic. Family Tree Maker is the market leader. Both cost around $29. The Mormons will let you download PAF for free. It is clunky, but it is free. You can sometimes find old versions of FTM or Family Origins (FO is the predecessor of RM) in bargin bins at CostCo.

    Get a No Cost Background Check Scan at

    Its a sensible way to start. The site allows you to do a no cost scan simply to find out if any sort of data is in existence. A smaller analysis is done without cost. To get a detailed report its a modest payment.

    You may not realize how many good reasons there are to try and find out more about the people around you. After all, whether you're talking about new friends, employees, doctors, caretakers for elderly family members, or even significant others, you, as a citizen, have a right to know whether the people you surround yourself with are who they say they are. This goes double in any situation that involves your children, which not only includes teachers and babysitters, but also scout masters, little league coaches and others. Bottom line, if you want to find out more about someone, you should perform a background check.

    I once had a sax change. I went from an E flat Alto to a B flat Soprano. I felt like a new woman. Well, I hate to be snippy, but sex change operations are always a risk. You have to be pretty ballsy to try one. You might try to contact a few sex change specialists, but don't sound too belligerent. They get enough testy calls over the phone. Bubba needs all the support he can get, so please avoid any cutting remarks. Does he know his dress size? He will need a new wardrobe. When this is all over and the operation is a success, will you and Bubba still be friends, or will you be more than friends?

    Luckly this is a great solution for premature ejaculation

    A guy always cums fast when its their first time. and especially if he's been waiting for a long time. Guys are erect at least 5 times a day so what I would do is some foreplay until he ejaculates or the both of you for that matter its not fair that he has orgasms and you don't so get him to do you first and then once you finish he will be more than ready for his orgasm. then use a condom because that cuts down the sensations for him if he feels he is about to come prematurely then tell him to come out and do some more foreplay on you so he has time to calm down. the condom should work but if you want a baby tell him to take the condom of before ejaculation and then finish in you. the longer you wait to make him come with foreplay the quiker it will be because he has to get it out of him.

    He also does need time because you are the only one he has been with so once he gets used to it, you can really enjoy it once he gets his techniques down pat. Tell him what you like. Get some books and videos also until you both are experienced. Or you could even have a quickie in the morning, when you get home and then at night. he will diffently last longer because his mind has been free twice already. You get on top of him and you control the situation. Also my boyfriend tells me that he thinks about none sexual things for a while to help control him, tell him to think about a sport or something that calms him. If that doesn't work then just do IT over until you are satisfied
