Giving Is Better

At this special time of remembering others in a spirit of generosity, give something back to the genealogical community.

There are numerous free online genealogical web sites that have helped all of us advance our family history research.

Here are some ideas for how to give others a boost up their family tree:

--become a volunteer for the FamilySearch indexing project

--adopt a state or county, do lookups, or help with other projects at U.S. Genweb and World Genweb

--do a Random Act of Genealogical Kindness for others

Where would these wonderful free websites be without the generosity of genealogical volunteers? This holiday season, pay it forward: give something back to them.
