Rootsweb is the oldest free genealogy site on the web today with hundreds of millions names from around the world online. Performing a thorough search on RootsWeb can be challenging, but rewarding. There are several reasons for this:
  • RootsWeb is quite large. There are literally hundreds of gigabytes of content and hundreds of millions of names on RootsWeb.
  • RootsWeb actually consists of thousands of Web sites, databases and files that have accumulated in different formats since 1993 and which continue to grow every day.
  • This accumulation was unplanned; therefore, there is today no single place where you can search all of RootsWeb.


The content of much of what is on the RootsWeb site has been placed there by other users, both as a means of finding fellow researchers with common interests and as a service to the genealogy community. You are encouraged to continue this work by contributing your own queries, comments and research results to Rootsweb.
