free genealogy resources- this list was put together by nemo'smom, we hope this helps in your searches.



Thought I'd list some of the free resources for researching the unclaimed and this is as much to remind myself what is available:

And most of these I got from this website called 101 ways to research your family tree for free (I believe in giving credit where credit is due): http://genealogy.about.com/cs/free_g...free_sites.htm

These are some that I picked out. There are many others listed in the above article, check it out!
