- Dec 31, 2009Do you have a LDS church around you? A lot of them have a family research
center that you can go to>You don't have to be a Mormon to go to them they
are open to everyone and the volunteers there are very helpful.You can acess
Ancestry,com and I believe footnote.com at them, also you can rent microfilm
of records etc., that the church has copied. Also the LDS c hurch holds a
twice yearly "genealogy conference" at a lot of the churches on a Saturday,
They have a lot of different classes that you can attend from beginner to
expert, again you don't have to be a church member to attend. Here in Idaho
the fee is $9 for all day. I have been to them and have learned alot,I am
not LDS. Go to:
This is the website for the church, they have a search box that you can look
and see if there is a family history library in your area. Also you can
contact them and see if they have any genealogy conferences in your area.
Also on the website check out the site map at bottom of page, there are
articles on gettibg started atc. under research helps and library tabs there
are also a lot of articles to help you get started.
Also check out www.rootsweb.com
and sign up for the Gen- Newbie list. There are a lot of helpful people on
that list. and also at rootsweb there are name lists,state lists,city lists
Good luck in your research.
