Genealogy Research

If you're interested in genealogy but not sure how or where to start on the Internet, here are some sites that you may find helpful. I'll add more sites as I find them and will gladly welcome any recommended sites from visitors.

I will be adding information particular to the surnames that I'm researching here, too. So far that includes Arnold, Buckingham, Randolph, Cree, Stevens, Johnston, Hayden, Hazen, Johnson, Brown, Dennis, Toole, Parmer, Cecil, Gilmore, Yost, Smith, Pittman, Taylor, Bauchener, and Cain. Please visit again (or e-mail me!) if you're also looking for information on these names.

Thanks for visiting and happy hunting!

P.S. Just for Christmas, please read this little poem....enjoy!

Every 10 years, the feds make a record of the country's inhabitants by name. You can see those records through 1930 (there's a 72-year privacy cutoff), as well as some state and special censuses. For an index, visit or Images of census pages are available to subscribers, or for sale on CD-ROM. You can also view pages on microfilm at the National Archives and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' Family History Library, both of which have branches around the country.

Passenger lists spanning six centuries are available in reference books, on CD-ROM, and on fee-based genealogy sites; many are also searchable for free, thanks to sites like and The Ellis Island site offers a searchable database of passenger manifests.

Look to the U.S. armed forces for vital records, a physical description, and much more. Try the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors System and the United States Internet Genealogical Society Military Collection Site. Look for a pension file (maybe under a widow's name) and bounty land warrant application files (land was sometimes awarded to vets). The National Archives and Records Administration should have both.
