Free Lookups at

I think we all have a soft spot in our hearts for the word “free.” Something about it always gives us pause (except when it’s free advice). So for you freebie lovers out there, here’s a good deal:

You can request two free lookups from the Ancestral Findings Web site. Once you’re there, make sure to read the Guidelines so you don't mess up a good thing.

- Birth Records
- Land Records
- State Records
- Death Records
- Military Records
- Census Records
- Marriage Records
- World Family Trees
- Passenger & Immigration Records

If a database name has “free” next to it, you’re in luck!

Here’s another word we all like: contest! At, you can register one time to be in their perpetual drawing for a free genealogy resource (which is mailed to you). Drawings are on Sunday and Wednesday.

Happy Hunting!
