Stay updated on additions to online record collections. We’ll share updates about new collections posted by the major genealogy websites, societies, and more.
You’ll see weekly updates (usually) about each of these sites, when they post:
- MyHeritage (WorldVitalRecords)
- British Newspaper Archive
- Deceased Online
As we hear about online records published by local societies and archives, we’ll add them too, so please let us know about those new collections.
If you are interested in digitizing your collections, stay tuned for more information on that topic.
Our mission is two-fold:
- Educate the genealogy community about new online genealogy resources
- Help to accelerate the pace of moving genealogy records online
We do that by:
- Publishing news about new collections posted online
- Publishing news about projects available for indexing
- Teaching how to search and find information in online collections
- Reaching out to record providers to talk with them about digitizing their records
(Well, ok, these last two are ones we want to do more of but are still working towards.)
GenVines was created by me, Janell Vasquez. I got my start in genealogy with a simple class on beginning family history research at BYU, and left college with a full-fledged degree. I love solving problems and piecing the puzzle of my family’s lives together. I created this site after being frustrated, knowing how much is being placed online all the time – and that the pace is only going to accelerate. But because it’s spread out all over the place, it’s impossible to know what’s happening and where. So the hope is to help others be able to keep up.
