GenealogyBank.com, a website with a wealth of resources for genealogists, is celebrating it's fourth anniversary. Four years is a very long time for any website to be continually active. To celebrate, they had a sale that gave genealogists who subscribed to this website in October of 2010 a discount on an annual membership. It's nice when a website celebrates it's success by doing something nice for the users who helped the website to become so popular!
GenealogyBank is a website genealogists can use to explore their family history. They have the largest newspaper archive available. Search through historical newspapers dating back to 1690, or as recent as 2007. They have a collection of obituaries from 1977 to the present day. You can also search through the Social Security Death Index, their collection of historical books, or important military documents.
They have over 700 million family history records right now. More are being added daily, as they work on digitizing more newspapers. This website features over 4,500 different newspapers from all fifty states of America. This includes the big newspapers that come from large cities, as well as the newspapers from small towns. You can find daily newspapers, and some regional weeklies.
The website started in 2006, and they have added over 570 million records to it since they first launched. GenealogyBank is the website to go to if you would like to have exclusive access to over 300 years of useful genealogical information. These particular resources cannot be found anywhere else. Old newspapers can be a great source of the real life stories of your ancestors. Finding an obituary of an ancestor can tell you so much more about his or her life than you can learn from a death certificate. If you would like to try the GenealogyBank website for yourself, you can fill out the form on their website, and get a 30 day free trial.
