As we discussed in the last lesson, looking for your ancestors on the Internet opens up a lot of options. The Online Data Collections generally cover fairly specific places, times, or groups of people, which is great if you're researching a potential ancestor that matches those criteria.

Genealogy Library offers that same quality of data, but over a wide spectrum of states and time periods. It also collects many hard-to-find and obscure resources under one virtual roof, and includes the largest online collection of 1850 census images. The entire archive is fully searchable, so you can look for an ancestor over many types of information.

Genealogy Library also offers online access to historical records from our data collection, including marriage records, vital records, family histories, and many other record types. This lesson will show you how to use all of the records in the collection to help find your ancestors.
