There are a TON of resources out there now to help you along your genealogical journey. Some are free, some are not, and I’ve broken them down into two separate sections:

Genealogical Research Resources

DNA Resources

DNA Testing Companies


Social media sites such as Facebook, Instagram, WordPress, Blogger/Blogspot, and even Twitter can provide helpful information when researching your family tree. Don’t be afraid to use Google to search for ancestors or resources.

I highly recommend Amy Johnson Crow’s blog on WordPress as she is the creator of the 52 Ancestors Challenge.
