The best free genealogy resource online is FamilySearch.org, and in particular, their free online catalog. A lot of people get intimidated by it or they don’t even know it’s there. In this video, I explain how to get to the catalog and then how to drill down to find the content that you seek even though a lot of the records contained within are not indexed as other content on the site is.

Excellent review of the FamilySearch image collection. I have used the same technique Sarah outlined for the last year or so. I am a great believer in the value of deeds to solve genealogy issues. I would add to always make a note of the image number once you have found a document of value so that you will not have to hunt for it a second time and to be able to cite the image # in your biographical ancestor summary.
WOW, I had no idea all this information was accessible online. Thanks you very much!
