AncestorNews: Free Lookups

While searching for marriage records, I ran across a great source of free lookups on Ancestral Findings at This site offers free lookups of marriage, birth, death, immigration, land, military and census records in dozens of different resources.

I immediately clicked on the marriage category and requested a lookup in the Missouri Marriage Index, 1851-1900. Unfortunately, the marriage I thought would be there wasn't. The good news is I didn't have to buy the index to get the bad news.

Lookups are limited to one per day, but what a great way to track down records that you'd otherwise have to purchase. Plus, when you request a lookup, you're automatically entered in a drawing to win a free surname report—a report from 10 genealogical databases of your choice.

While you're on the site, check out the "View Hard to Find Surnames" link. This is a searchable database where you can post and read brick wall problems.
