Getting Started

If you're here, then you think family is important and you're curious about yours. The Who, What and Why of it all. Did they do anything cool? I scan our pictures trying to see the passage of the gene pool through facial features and it amazes me when a face four generations away is identical to a current cousin. Enjoy our LibGuide to help navigate the plethora of genealogy resources. It's a rewarding, but maddening detective story discovering the truth.

This guide is still a HUGE work in progress.  All suggestions, especially of websites that are useful on this guide are great!!
