Genealogy Gophers

This week someone posted a link to Genealogy Gophers on the RAOGK Facebook group.  Genealogy Gophers is new to me and I thought I would pass it on.

I found a few things on there rather quickly.  It’s not a huge website but it is free.  With one small string attached – the first record you click to view takes you to a survey.  I was curious what would happen if I clicked “prefer not to answer”.  Well, I’ll be darned, it just ended the survey and took me to the image.  I only had to deal with that one survey question while I was researching the first time.  When I used the website the next time, no survey.

But back to the website.  It has a collection of digitized books.  Family history books, county books, society books, all sorts of books.

Give it a try and let me know if you find anything good.

Happy Researching!

  1. Very cool! I found my GGF in a directory I’d not seen before. Not sure what else will be there, but thanks for the tip!

  2. I learned about the site a year ago. I was able to get a family book and newsletters published by the same family association. A few months later they were no longer available. So glad I downloaded the pdf’s asap. Still your post is a good reminder to go back and see if there is anything new. Thanks!
