I love-love-love FamilySearch.org and mainly for one reason - the Texas Death Records. Last year before the Texas Death records were added to Record Search, I spent $20 apiece for several death records from Texas. Since the database has gone online, I have probably copied close to 200 death records for ancestral relatives for free! Do the math. Information found in the death records has given mother's maiden names, broken down difficult brick-walls, helped to locate places of burial, etc, etc, and etc.
In addition to the Texas Deaths 1890-1976, FamilySearch.org has US Census Records, State Census records, Death Records for Ohio, Arizona, Michigan and other states, marriage records and the list just goes on and on. International records are also available. All for FREE!!
Check back frequently for new collections that have been updated or added.
FamilySearch.org makes me want to do the genealogy happy dance! :) Can you tell I'm excited or what about this site?
You can perform a search from the main page or go to a record collection. To search a record collection, go to the Browse by Location, click on a location, then scoll through the record collections available. I usually first do a search on the main page, then go to specific record collections for more specific searches.
Have fun finding your ancestors!
