Welcome to GenDir.com, a great place to research your family tree, locate your ancestors, find geneology software and other geneology resources.

Researching genealogy is tough. We know, we've been doing it for many years. That's why we've developed a genealogy research site to help others locate their ancestors. We hope you find something here that helps you in your search.

We've also been developing new innovations and resources in online genealogy that we've found lacking elsewhere. Our genealogy message board is a unique resource of researchers like yourself. The surname registry is one of the largest on the internet. Every day, many people connect with fellow researchers through our surname registry.

The newest feature to GenDir.com is the Genealogy Journals. Like a message board, it allows users to post their research information. Journals are organized differently and allow you to find other related journals through common subjects and categories, not message board threads that disappear after a few weeks.

We've built one of the best list of free genealogy sites and resources on the Internet. Use the links below to locate resources for researching your family tree.

What to do at GenDir.com:

  1. Genealogy Message Boards: Post messages on our genealogy message board.
  2. Check out our Surname Search. Track your searches on the most popular genealogy databases.
  3. Browse our Surname List, see who else is researching your names and register your own.
  4. Genealogy Categories: Browse to find general genealogy resources like tutorials, software, mail lists, and message boards.
  5. Genealogy Regions: Browse to locate location-specific genealogy resources. For example to research Massachusetts genealogy, drill down into North America.

Tip: Have you ever taken a look at Family Tree Magazine? It's got great information on all things genealogy. Check here for Family Tree Price Comparisons.

Family Genealogy Tree Guide: Where to start when researching your family tree.
