Ancestry.com's Available Resources

The Research Center on Ancestry.com offers terminology translations for various languages. Once on the page, there are many words and phrases that are translated from your specified language into English.

Not being fluent in Spanish yet doing Mexican research to trace my ancestors, I use many different translators and guides to assist in my journeys. This is just one of many options to add to my online library. Along with Spanish, there are also translations for French, German, Italian, Dutch, Latin and more.

By clicking onto one page, there are many different links for the researcher to use.

On this same page, there are also links to Ancestry’s downloadable Research Guides. Various guides are available for free download. Topics include “Black Sheep: 10 Things to Know” and “Find Your Civil War Ancestor on Ancestry.com” to “Finding Your German Ancestors on Ancestry.com”.

A very useful tool is available here. I hope everyone uses these tools.

Start planing now! The National Archives Virtual Genealogy Fair is coming up in October.

Summer Camp at the National Archives! This week budding genealogists are joining us for Genealogy Camp in the Boeing Learning Center. 

This hands-on, week-long camp for kids introduces the basics of genealogy research and the resources of the National Archives. Campers are using ship manifests and census records to trace an immigrant family’s arrival in the United States in the early 20th century.

Cosanguinity Relationship Chart. 
Definition: Consanguinity: (“blood relation”, from the Latin consanguinitas) is the property of being from the same kinship as another person. In that respect, consanguinity is the quality of being descended from the same ancestor as another person. (According to Wiki). 

This is a pretty interesting DNA chart. Especially for those of us who are heavily involved in DNA genealogy.
Very true !

Posted on Family Tree Magazine on Facebook, Wiki has an option for it’s users to create an e-book from the pages that you want saved.

Interesting article about the DNA of American Indians. 

This article comes from the TheMindUnleashed.org and discusses the attempts of researchers in pin-pointing the origination of American Indians.
