Tuesday's Tip - Olive Tree Genealogy

Today's Tuesday's Tip is to:  Use the Olive Tree Genealogy website to find FREE genealogy records for your American and Canadian ancestors.

Lorine McGinnis Schulze, who writes the excellent Olive Tree Genealogy Blog, started this website in 1996, and now has over 1900 webpages to help genealogists with their research.  There is a three-step "Genealogy Finder" on the site, which includes:
  • First the free transcribed genealogy records - there are over 1,900 now. Look for your family ancestors in free genealogy records marked with the Olive Tree Genealogy logo. Search for ancestors on Olive Tree Genealogy
  • Second the Genealogy tutorials and help files - Genealogy Help on finding your ancestors in census records, land records, ships passenger lists, birth, marriage and death records, and more.
  • Third the Genealogy Resource Guides. Genealogy How-to-Guides help you easily find your ancestors as you search ships passenger lists, Huguenots, Native Americans, Canadian Immigration, Palatines and more.
Olive Tree Genealogy has a wealth of links, and articles, for Passenger Lists, Ships Search, Immigration Tips, Canada, Military, Genealogy Guide, Loyalists, New Netherland, Native American, Palatine Genealogy, Photo Albums, Almshouse, Orphan Records, Huguenots, Mennonites, Quakers, UK Ireland, Genealogy Secrets! & Odds 'n Ends .

Lorine has some sister sites and partners too - have a look at the genealogy databases and goodies on these sites after your visit to Olive Tree Genealogy: Try it out, especially if you have Canadian ancestry or northeastern USA ancestry.
