    Family History Research


      I want to conduct research on my family.  I have birth and death death dates of my ancestors.  Can I conduct the research online or do I have to visit the NARA building in person?  Thanks

          Dear Ms. Winston,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          We suggest that you begin your family research using the tips and resources listing on the NARA’s Resource for Genealogists. Many genealogical records have been digitized or microfilmed. The microfilm is available at NARA facilities across the country. If the records you seek are available in digital form, they can be viewed online via ancestry.com or fold3.com. There may be a fee for this service. Or you may view these records online at one NARA's facilities for free via ALIC. For the nearest NARA location, please consult our web page at https://www.archives.gov/locations/. Also, some of the images from Ancestry are available for free on Family Search at https://www.familysearch.org/en/.


          We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
