Title: Eighty-two Free Online Resources

Snippet: Researching your family tree shouldn’t burn a hole in your wallet. Occasionally, there will be costs associated with obtaining certain official records, but otherwise, the majority of research can be completed with minimal or no financial payout.In some instances, Internet companies charge to view the same information available for free when it’s provided by other organisations.

The problem is finding the free resources. At times, companies which want your money may try and mislead you to think specific data is available only through their website and nowhere else. Or they provide a free index, allowing you to find the name you seek, but reveal the data only after you pay a fee. The ploy is to hook you with possibilities, so you’re more inclined to part with your money.
