Website Recommendation - Access Genealogy

Type:        Research
Cost:        Free
Look:       7
Ease:       9
Speed:     Fast

Access genealogy is a site for the researcher. If you are looking for records in the United States this is a good place to start. After 10 years as a free service they are still free. This site measures close to the top and I always seem to rate other sites in comparison to it.

The first look at the site is clean and easy to use. There are ads running on the site, but they are clean and not annoying. The only way they can keep the site free is when you support them by using there advertisers.

What is available?
Native American records
Genealogy records
State records

Under the hook look gets way better. On the right side select a state. This is the meat behind the site. They list places for free information and provide links. They also list information available on other search engines and provide links. They even provide links to sites that are by subscription. This is a web site (tool box) that I would pay for.

Things I most like: If the site does not have what your looking for it may give you links to other sites that may be able to help you. Doesn’t get much better than that.

Things I don’t like: Some of the links don’t always work. I guess it’s the nature of the beast.
Overall recommendation: Highly Recommend
