Now is a great time to start a genealogy journey. There are many online options for researching your families’ history. FamilySearch.com offers free searches and the ability to find more information already discovered by others, and even find pictures of your ancestors. Ancestry.com is now allowing access to a lot of its records. FindaGrave.com will let you find cemetery stones and even make a virtual cemetery of all your ancestors, you can even leave flowers! Join Professional Genealogist Carol Cooke Darrow as she guides you to techniques that allow you to discover your roots.

“Listening to Carol’s presentations and her advice allowed me to successfully conduct the initial research of the family trees of both my father and mother. Her guidance and encouragement helped me write a book about my mother’s genealogy–much of which had been lost with the family’s emigration to the U.S.” — Sandra Gill, Thornton
