Searching for your Ancestors?The beginning of any research is speaking with family members, visiting graveyards and searching for old bible records. Next, researching the Census Records if important. But those records only go back to 1790 and at that point have limited data. This is why the most important phase of genealogical research is to search county court houses where the families resided. In America, one can easily go back to 1607. This is the main purpose of this website, which features images of actual records in Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. Hence, the problem which genealogists have suffered for many years, of old, aged records difficult to read and in many cases lacking proper indexes is now resolved on this website.
