Interested in Learning About Your Family History?

Are you interested in learning more about your family history?

Did you know that the US Government provides online resources for determining where and when your forbearers first arrived in the United States?

The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) keeps and maintains the US's important records and documents, like the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. But NARA also maintains documents that can help you learn about your family's history, like immigration records, veterans' records, census records, and land records dating back to 1775.

The National Archives' Genealogy Research page is a great place to start your research. Not only can you search through immigration and naturalization records to find information on your ancestors, you can also get tips on research resources and overcoming obstacles in your search.

Many of NARA's records and documents are available in electronic format on the National Archives website.
