Research Notes

Looking for genealogies? Here’s a good place to start . . .

For 125 years, the Genealogy Society of Utah and its successor, FamilySearch International, have collected genealogies submitted through earlier research programs or created by partners and other societies. These genealogies are available online in Genealogies under the Search tab on To further serve FamilySearch users, the Search options on the Genealogies search page have been updated.

Kenneth R. Marks has built an impressive collection of newspapers, obituaries, yearbooks and other digital resources that are freely accessible. His The Ancestor Hunt blog is easy to navigate and full of useful resources making it a great place to look for information about your ancestors. Stop by The Ancestor Hunt and see for yourself.


Another useful resource is the Affordable Research blog on Tumblr. This blog collects resources from university libraries, state archives and other freely accessible sources. The Research Resource Center group on MeWe also collects links to these resources. The group takes advantage of MeWe’s #tags feature to provide an index making it easier to find the resource you are looking for.
