International Genealogy Passport Helps You Trace Ancestors Around the World

By Diane Haddad

One of the newest additions to Family Tree Shop is our CD International Genealogy Passport: Your Ticket to Tracing Your Roots in the Old Country.

This is an update to the International Genealogy Passport we published in early 2007 (our very first CD). That one was popular, so we thought it was time for a brand-new version with updated listings of websites, books and archives for countries around the globe, plus some other enhancements.

Distance, language, hard-to-access records and travel costs can make it challenging to do genealogy research in your ancestral homeland, so the new International Genealogy Passport gives you a head start with:

  • country-by-country genealogy resources for Canada, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Australia and New Zealand, Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean
  • best websites for learning about history, culture, records and genealogical research (just click each URL to visit the site)
  • bibliographies of how-to books and published indexes to relevant records for each place. Book titles link to free online versions when available
  • addresses, phone numbers and websites of important repositories
  • expert tips for contacting overseas repositories
  • our guide to tracing your ancestors to the old country—without having to book a plane ticket
  • maps of 53 countries show you major administrative divisions, capitals and large cities

The new International Genealogy Passport CD is available now for pre-order for $14.99 at Family Tree Shop (it qualifies for our free standard shipping on US orders over $25).
