In genealogy, Sources are our most important tool. Many of these are available online. Below is a collection of links to various websites that might be useful in our research.

Several genealogy websites maintain databases of government records and user submitted data. While there are many resources available on the web it is important to learn the validity of data collected. Many handwritten records are left to interpretation and simple data entry mistakes can lead to extraneous research.

In order to maintain the highest levels of data quality it is important to keep records of all communications and data collection. Learn to use the Sources and Documents features on Geni. Interview living members of the family you are researching. Search vital records at government archives, municipalities, and churches in person. Some organizations offer the hiring of professional genealogists to research your family tree.
