Archives.com calls itself “the web’s biggest family history bargain,” and it is a perfect resource for those with American ancestors who are beginning their research or just dabbling. The core content is US census and vital records, basic to building a family tree. A strong collection of 20th-century resources helps flesh out recent generations and connect with living relatives. Additional offsite resources (most of them free) are suggested with most searches to further extend your reach. A simple interface helps you build a family tree and attach records to relatives.
