10 Free Genealogy Sites: A Handy Infographic

As some of our regular readers may know, we get many questions each week about how to find free genealogy sites on the web. New family historians can get overwhelmed looking for research options, and end up only using sites like Ancestry to research their ancestors.

And while and other paid sites are certainly very valuable resources for genealogists, they are only a small part of the picture.

There are many free genealogy sites available to help you track down the information you need. Of course, only you can determine the best sites for your own family history research—but we thought it would be useful to share 10 of our favorites. Enjoy!

Please note: StoryWorth (#8 on the graphic below) is only free for the first month. We included it because it is such a unique and helpful service, and because they do not ask for a credit card to be placed on file to take advantage of the free time. You can use that free month to collect stories from family and then save those stories to your files, which we think is a nice offering to genealogists.
