Have You Been Through the Genealogy Portal?
By Jan Edwards
Why do I need to go to a Family History Center Library when I have the interenet at home! Did you know that these libraries have what they call “THE PORTAL.”
So what the heck is a PORTAL?
These Family History Centers have affilations with these great sites! They are offered FREE to all people that come into the center to use them. Most are pretty expensive to have at home.
When at the Center from this page you click on Premium Family History Websites!
You will then see this (Remember that the sites available at different centers may vary, so find out before you go)!
FamilySearch gives a great explanation for each site!
They also have a great article on Family History Centers!
How do you locate a Family History Center near you? FamilySearch will help you locate one!
So come on over! Try the sites for free! A small fee for copies is charged, but for me it has been cheaper to print my copies there than use my own ink and paper!
