Did you know that millions of genealogy records

    Many genealogical records related to your ancestry search, important records like family wills, court records, obituaries, death certificates, military records and land deeds are generally not available online and can only
be obtained by mailing research requests to places like local public libraries or cemeteries, or by visiting the LDS Family History Library
in Utah. These records are critical to any comprehensive ancestry search and should not be overlooked if high quality and thorough research results are to be achieved during your project. For these
and other reasons, it's sometimes a great idea to hire a professional genealogist to assist you with your genealogy search.
