52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy - Week 3

Week #3 – Free Online Genealogy Tools

Week 3 – Free Online Genealogy Tools: Free online genealogy tools are like gifts from above. I have many FREE online favorites, but if I would have to pick just one, I would have to go with 
If you do not have Genealogy Software, then you can download a FREE version of Personal Ancestral File (PAF), I don't use PAF exclusively, but there are some reports that I prefer in PAF's format.
PAF is easy to use, and provides you with a good basic program in which to collect and store your genealogy data.  I usually advise beginners to start with PAF and get used to working with a genealogy program before sinking lots of money into a program you may or may not like.

As for other, FREE Online Genealogy Favorites, this week my personal  favorite is
www.wvculture.org - I will post about my discoveries in another post, but let's just say it was a "Brick Wall Busting Moment"!!

52 Weeks of Abundant Genealogy by Amy Coffin is a series of weekly blogging prompts (one for each week of 2012) that invite genealogists and others to discuss resources in the genealogy community including websites, applications, libraries, archives, genealogical societies and more. You do not have to be a blogger to participate. If you do not have a genealogy blog, write down your thoughts on your computer, or simply record them on paper and keep them with your files.
