New U.S. Genealogy Records Directory

LDSGenealogy.com is pleased to announce a complete site relaunch, including the addition of an extensive U.S. genealogy records directory with more than 579,000 record sources from 930 websites and archives. The directory includes detailed information from online sources such as FamilySearch, Ancestry, MyHeritage, American Ancestors, FindMyPast, Newspapers.com, Fold3, Find a Grave, US Gen Web, Genealogy Bank, Newspaper Archive, Archives.com, Chronicling America, Elephind, Distant Cousin, Billion Graves, and hundreds of smaller and local sites. Records from offline sources are also included such as the Family History Library, the U.S. Newspaper Directory from the Library of Congress, the New York State Library, the Boston Public Library, and several others.

The records directory has been under development for several years and is now newly available all on one site. One of the challenges to doing genealogy research, particularly for the United States, is that the relevant records are scattered across many websites and archives, and it can be time consuming to locate them. The directory has detailed information down to the county and town/city level for the entire United States for both online and archival sources. So you can come to one place, find the location, and easily and quickly find the relevant records for your research. New record sources for the United States will continue to be added, and listings for other countries are under development. Submissions to the directory are welcome. Helpful articles for learning genealogy are also available on theĀ  site.

LDSGenealogy.com has been providing free helpful information for everyone interested in finding their ancestors since 2008.
