Access Free Genealogy

AccessGenealogy.com contains the largest collection of free genealogy for your United States research. Find hundreds of thousands of free websites with billions of names you can use to further your family genealogy! Specifically, we provide sources for birth records, death records, marriage records, census records, tax records, church records, court records, military records, historical newspapers, cemeteries, and ethnic records. We also provide some historical details about different times and people in America’s history. Our specialty, however, is Native American genealogy and research. You can always access our Native American collection of material, by using the link at the top of every page.

Access Genealogy directs researchers to free United States genealogy resources online. We do this in two methods, by categorizing your search (links in the menu at the top of every page) or by enabling you to search by locality (links on the right of every page under the US Genealogy heading).

Our search is found on the right of every page, but remember it only searches our website, and not the hundreds of thousands we link to. It also doesn’t search our databases. You will need to search those one-by-one.

If you wish to stay up-to-date with each of our new posts, then subscribe to AccessGenealogy. Be forewarned, we do add pages frequently, so you may get multiple emails each day. If you would prefer, you can find us at AccessGenealogy on Facebook and receive notifications in that manner!
