RootsWeb

The massive RootsWeb Web site sometimes overwhelms novice genealogists because there is just so much there to see and do. User contributed databases provide access to transcribed records put online through the efforts of volunteer researchers. The World Connect Project allows you to search a database of user-contributed family trees, containing more than more than 372 million ancestor names. RootsWeb also hosts many major online sources of free genealogy data, including the Obituary Daily Times, a daily index to published obituaries going back to about 1997; and FreeBMD (birth, marriage and death indexes) and FreeReg (transcribed parish records) for England and Wales. for more click here
