GenSource Archives Search Instructions and Guide  

I Found It! Archives is an index of genealogy sites containing historical records that are available to the public without charge. Your search criteria is compared to the contents of these sites.

If you are having trouble finding matches:

1) Each site has it's own format for entering names so try john and smith instead of john smith

2) Abbreviations are NOT used in the title of each site, so try Pennsylvania instead of PA

3) Not all census information is available on the Internet, only those that have been transcribed.

4) This index contains some 500 pages of census records and indexes and some 200 pages of passenger lists. This is only a portion of sites available on the Internet. At this time not all states and countries are represented.
