NOTE from DearMYRTLE: Whilst serving as vendor chair at the NGS 2010 Conference, I received an email from the folks at, with some content about record groups included below for my DearREADERS. Please address all inquiries to Now, DearREADERS, tell me about your experiences with this website.


· Over 30 million California vital records were integrated into

· Family Tree enhancements include: print, expanded tree view, and increased GEDCOM import size

· Archives adds three new videos to the website: About Us, Search Tutorial, and Family Tree Tutorial (About Us video located on new About Us page)

· Archives allows members and non-members to access millions of records from FamilySearch U.S., U.K, and Canadian collections

· Expert Series article written by USGenWeb National Coordinator Sherri Bradley about volunteering and genealogy

About Archives:

Our goal at is to make family history simple and affordable. members can search over 1.2 billion records, create a family tree with our powerful yet easy-to-use online software tools, and learn from our Search Guide, Family History Made Simple course, and Expert Series. We are excited about the service we’ve built in less than a year’s time, but are continuing to work hard to add new features and greatly expand the number of historical records in our database.

We provide memberships for only $39.95 per year – much less expensive than most other family history websites. We also make it easy for members to find additional records, and discounted subscriptions from our partners like NewspaperArchive, Footnote, and VitalChek. This allows us to keep the price really low for members who value affordability, and make sure people only pay for the information they care about (rather than a ‘one-price-fits-all’ membership).

We also offer a 7-day free trial so that anyone can try risk-free before deciding whether to remain a member. We announce updates on our blog here:
