Best Free Online Genealogy Tools
Ancestral research is part historian, part archivist, part detective work and with the occasional dash of good luck. In this article, we look at internet tools that will help you accomplish all four. And to further our mandate of using creative and innovative ways to help people find their ancestors, GenealogyInTime Magazine goes beyond the usual suspects like FamilySearch, or Dropbox.
We focus on websites that help you solve a specific genealogy issue. The one common theme with all the websites in this article is that none of them were specifically designed for ancestral research, but all of them can be very useful to a genealogist.

We have reproduced two of the visualizations below to give you a sense of the power of this website. [US Census Data Visualization Gallery]
