WSU Libraries does not have a subscription to Ancestry.com, however many public library systems do. Contact your local library to see if they subscribe, and if so you may be able to access the resource by signing up for a library card. For students who do not have access to Ancestry.com through their local library, Family Search provides an alternative, free resource.
Family Search is a genealogy database that provides free accounts to users. Through this website The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints also offers access to genealogical resources, online classes and instructional videos.
The USGenWeb Project is made possible through the work of volunteers to identify free genealogy websites for research in every county and every state of the United States. Your searches will be most effective if you know the state and country where the relative you are researching settled.
A project sponsored by Brigham Young University's Center for Family History and Genealogy. To create the database, images of emigrant records are transmitted over the Web to volunteers who extract their contents and send them back to the project team at Brigham Young University. (BYU). BYU students are hired as part of the project team to supervise the volunteers and edit their work before adding it to the database.
