Honor National Family History Month in October

In This Issue:

Honor National Family History Month - Work On Your Family Tree!

Celebrate National Family History Month at OneGreatFamily

October is National Family History Month, a month to celebrate our ancestors and the stories of our families. OneGreatFamily wants to help you make the most of this month. Get started by submitting or creating your family tree on OneGreatFamily.

OneGreatFamily will then match against nearly 80 million names that have already been submitted to our service. When a match is found, your family tree will be merged with others and become part of the larger OneGreatFamily database.

If you have already submitted your family tree, now is the time to see if your family tree has grown, to verify new information that has been made available through OneGreatFamily, or to add more ancestors to your family tree to provide more potential connections for others.

If you haven't had a chance, you may also consider inviting others who are interested in genealogy to become part of your experience at OneGreatFamily. Give them your OneGreatFamily username to enter when they sign up and we will give you a free month added to your subscription as our way of saying “thanks” for spreading the word about our great service.

We hope you are enjoying OneGreatFamily and that you will want to share your experience with others. Get others involved in their family history to celebrate National Family History Month.

National Archives' Locations Nationwide

by Lisa South, Certified Genealogist

Sometimes researchers think of the National Archives and only think of Washington D.C. In reality, however, the National Archives also has facilities in Alaska, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington.

You can find the addresses, driving directions, and hours of operation of each of these facilities at Click on Locations/visit us.
Some of their holdings are also listed.

Two things to remember about these facilities. The records don't always pertain to the region they are housed in and the records may not be available at these regional archives.

You can usually get a list of the complete holdings of the facilities by contacting them and requesting the listing.

One Great Genealogy Site Award

The site of ProGenealogists, Inc., a group of professional researchers located near Salt Lake City, Utah. These researchers have a wealth of experience and have access to the largest family history library in the world. Consider giving them a try if you need someone to look up a record or to verify information found in OneGreatFamily.
