No, You DON’T Need a Paid Subscription to Do Genealogy Research

While paid genealogy websites do offer many excellent resources for family historians, and sometimes provide records that you will have a hard time finding elsewhere, you do not need one of these subscriptions to build a family tree. In fact, restricting yourself to paid sites means that you will miss a huge number of records available elsewhere. So whether you are having a hard time affording a paid option, or are simply looking to expand your research in new directions, the following resources will help you explore your family’s history at no cost to you.

Family History Daily tells you how.

A New England Hogwarts

True to form, J.K. Rowling released a story this week about the founding of America’s School for Witchcraft and Wizardry, Ilvermorny, whose location was on the highest peak of Mount Greylock in the mountains of western Massachusetts. For most fans, the news was very exciting, as it was her latest addition to the magical world of Harry Potter. However, for genealogists, J.K.’s newest story fit so nicely into the known history of the founding of New England that we could hardly contain our excitement.
