formerly known as KindredConnections, is worthy of it’s name change. It now boasts over a billion records. It is the type of resource that you can join to post your family tree as well as research it. My favorite feature is one where you can earn your subscription fee by helping to extract original documents. Too me, that’s like getting paid for being a volunteer that helps other genealogists. I thought it was a great idea. You can find this option under “My Account – Pay with extraction hours.”

So that you know my background, I have been interviewed multiple times by radio stations across the country and have been the guest speaker at various Genealogy Society meetings including Franklin County, Ohio on Genealogy Software Programs and Online Genealogy. My extensive family tree, a labor of love for over 30 years is at Maybe we are related!
