Free State Research Guides

Learning about the history and what resources are available for the places your ancestor lived can give your research a solid boost. Our state research guide series includes historical background, a chronology, helpful information on census and vital record availability, highlighted collection for that place on Ancestry.com, and links to important resources beyond Ancestry.com.

We'll be continuing to add states throughout 2014, so if we don't have your ancestor's state yet, stay tuned.
