Between today and Wednesday, my genealogy column, Roots to the Past, is available in the following Atlantic Canada newspapers:
Saturday: The Citizen (Amherst)
Saturday: Times & Transcript (Moncton)
Wednesday: The Lunenburg County Progress Bulletin (Lunenburg County)
Title: Column: FREE Genealogy Websites
Snippet: Free. I love this word after a week of paying bills, buying hay for goats and filling the gas tank that emptied visiting cemeteries in another county. So when I have time to surf the web on these rainy July days, free access to genealogy information puts a smile on my face.
I’m familiar with dozens of free websites—Library and Archives Canada, Automatic Genealogy, Cindi’s List, to name a few—but I’m certain there are more out there, waiting to be discovered and searched.
A great place to start finding websites with free access to information—including the three I mentioned above—is Family History Daily (http://familyhistorydaily.com). A great starting place is their post “50 Free Genealogy Sites” which includes links to FamilySearch, WikiTree and Find a Grave.
