Lisa's Genealogy Story

I have been working on my family tree and history for several years.  I have found some fun and astounding facts about my family and ancestors.  I know many of our clients are already working on their family trees, I also know that many of you would like to start, but don't have a starting point.  Below are links to several helpful genealogy websites.  I have also added several worksheets and tools that I have found helpful, or developed myself.  If you would like to use Ancenstry.com, please let me know and I will help you get logged in for the first time.             

   

        

Please feel free to let me know any information that you think should be added to this page, or if you have tips you would like to share, after all we learn best from each other!  All of the site below have links and resources to sites I have not listed.  Once you dig in to your families past, you discover more websites then I have listed below.  My choices below are the sites that have been the most helpful to me. Through Ancestry.com there is access to Fold3 & Newspapers.com

www.ancestry.com -  BEST place to start!

www.familysearch.org - Step 2!
 

This is a referral site from Angela Whitney and her son, Luke Whitney. Luke was doing a family tree for a school project. Angela and Luke came across our site as a resource to help with Luke's school project.
Thanks for stopping and reaching out, Angela and Luke! - Lisa

Wesley & Spencer Collier reached out to us while studying genealogy for Spencer's social studies class. They bonded and enjoyed learning about their family history. They wanted to share with us this website on geography and ancestry. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do. Thanks for sharing Wesley and Spencer! - Lisa
