Ancestry.com is a site where you can find your ancestors. Many of the American and British archive collection were transformed into digital data and used to create this site. You can explore centuries of resources if you simply register on the site. Create your family tree with the known facts that you are aware of and let the program do its job after that. Ask your family about the persons who lived before them, about their grandmother and grandfather to be able to gain as much information as you can. Once you have collected it, write it in your family tree.
Take advantages from the files stored about your ancestors by the local authorities, documents that were available to be seen by the large public. Search among the enormous record collections of data for more info about them. Explore those records and keep in mind that this could be a hint to finding the right ancestor, because if you are not sure that a person is indeed your ancestor, you should not name it as being one of them. You should be certain when you type that John is your great-grandfather.
Why should you choose this site over others? Because ancestry.com has spent more than a decade building the largest online family tree resource, allowing access to Americans and British mostly. Of course, the other nationalities are invited as well to take part at this event, but they have enough chances to not find their ancestors here.
Some of the solutions provided by this site, which involves also a strong collaboration between the site members and those who work for the site, thus the site’s employees and representatives, include: viewing of the helpful tutorials and Webinars, checking the latest additions on ancestry.com, searching for ancestors, based not only on their names, but also based on the information you provided when you opened the account and the use of some programs, such as Family Tree Makes, which was presented earlier, My Canvas, Record Types and Online Family Tree.
You must be over 18 to be able to use the site and also you have to provide some credit card information, because this is a paid service. You are forbidden to tell other persons your username and password, and if you do, you do it on your own responsibility. The site Ancestry and its suppliers provide the content that you find here without any warranty. If you see that your ancestor could have been a carpenter, you, along with the software that you use can draw this conclusion. But it might not be the right one. You can find some important information with the use of this site, but my opionion is that after you find this, if you really want to see who your ancestors were, you should go to the local authorities where you have discovered that your uncle lived or where your great-grandmother worked. You should be able to see those documents, because generally these are not classified information, unless your relative was a very important person, whose file was deleted from the local authority’s archive, like you know that it happens with some other persons, even in our days. You should contact someone from the public library, because this is another location where these documents can be stored. So, the site and the software should be used as a tool to find more information about your ancestors, possibly their names and information about their workplace and their children, but you have to confirm this by going on field. This is my suggestion to those who want to be really, really sure that they are the descendents of some kings or queens.
