OneGreatFamily Provides Three Ways For You To Manually Search For Your Ancestors
The most effective way to find your ancestors is to let Genealogy Browser do the work for you. Simply put as much information as you have into Genealogy Browser, wait a few days, and then check back to see what additional information we have found on your ancestors. If, for some reason, you do not receive any matches at first, don’t despair. The information that you enter will be continually searched for possible matches against each and every record that is submitted to OneGreatFamily.
