Know why I call this blog Free Genealogy Tools? Go on...guess!
Today we're offering a free tool for you family history buffs that's a bit different from the usual name look-ups, databases, archives and such...the 2010 FGT Challenge:
Post a personal genealogy challenge in the Comments here. I'll pick one for some in depth research, to see what FGT can find.
So...tell us about your great grandfather, who seems to have disappeared without a trace, or your ancestors who immigrated to America, even though you can't find any record of their journey.
Who knows what mysteries will be revealed?
Don't be afraid to go way back, to your beknighted relatives in medieval England, perhaps.
Toss down the genealogical gauntlet...we'll see what we can find. So Comment away. Remember, though, this is a public webpage, so all material will be visible to my millions, er thousands umm scores of FGT readers.
Don't forget to also check for your family history at Ancestry.com and NewspaperArchive. These are subscription databases, but they are among the most powerful research tools available for looking into family roots.
