Ancestry.com

Not everyone would rank Ancestry.com at the top due to its relatively high subscription price, but most genealogists will tell you that this is the one research site that they use the most. If you’re doing a lot of research in the United States (or Great Britain) then the sheer number of databases and records available at Ancestry.com offers the greatest return on your investment. There are thousands of digitized original records, from the entire U.S. census (1790-1930) to passenger arrivals at major U.S. ports up to about 1950. Plus, a wide variety of military records, city directories, vital records and family histories. Before you plunk down money for a subscription, however, see if free access is available at your local library. for more click here
