Website: Olive Tree Genealogy

This week we are spotlighting OliveTree Genealogy.

From the site it states "Your link to the past since February 1996! Search for your ancestors in free Ships' Passenger lists, Naturalization Records, Palatine Genealogy, Canadian Genealogy, American Genealogy, Native American Genealogy, Huguenots, Mennonites, Almshouse Records, Orphan Records, church records, military muster rolls, census records, land records and more."

Lorine McGinnis Schulze is the individual behine this amazing website. Her story is both intriging and inspirational. In addition to providing a large variey of record sets on her web site, her own interests helped to build a large "Special Interest Area" that can aid descendants of some of the lesser known groups of individuals.

There is a section entitled "Find the Free Genealogy" that covers first time visitors and new to genealogy. On this page you'll see a section for Ships Passenger Lists, Genealogy & & Family Tree Resources, Canadian Genealogy, American Genealogy, Genealogy Blogs, Palatines, Mennonites, Huguenots & Walloons, New Netherland (New York) Genealogy, Native American, Loylists, Military, Custom Search Engines and Sister Sites & Partners. It will take an individual quite sometime to review just this page.

The section on "New to Genealogy" has 10 steps to help and other guides on the page. From here one can view any of the menu items at the top and research according to your needs at this time.

Depending on your research needs, one of these links can lead to more ancestral information!

Next week we'll investicate a couple more of these web pages and see what they hold.
