BYU Genealogy & Family History Resources


The Brigham Young University (BYU) Family History/Genealogy Resources webpage is a great source for genealogy information. The following are just a few of some of the features this site offers:

The Alphabetical List of Resources is a list of all BYU Family History Lab Resources.

Selected Internet Research Sites has many websites to view genealogy data. Examples of some sites listed with links are Ancestry.com, Cyndi's List, GenForum, HeritageQuest Online, Rootsweb.com, AltaVista, Google, Teoma, and Yahoo.

The Records page is a list of different types of records researchers can use to document their families. Examples include Census, Immigration, Death, Military and Vital Records.

The Subject List is listed as a category with links about that particular subject. For example, African American would have links that relate to that subject.

Education is a page devoted to courses and training methods. BYU Family History classes (campus and online), references, conferences, and articles to assist in learning genealogical procedures and lessons are available on this page. Many websites and what they offer in a genealogy education are provided, many FREE of charge.

The Libraries & Historical Societies page lists genealogy libraries and societies such as the Board of Certified Genealogist, Association of Professional Genealogist, The Library of Congress and NARA among many others.

The Reference consists of links to Blogs, Genealogy References, Maps & Gazetteers, Foreign Word Lists, Glossary, City Directories and more.

Family Histories are links to web based and CD Family Histories.

This site also has links to print genealogical forms and research helps. Blank census forms for the United Sates and other countries, Pedigrees, Family Group Sheets, Research Logs, War sources and Genealogy Charts are also provides.

Another new wonderful feature to the online library site is their Remembering World War II, Pearl Harbor & Beyond.
The Harold B. Lee Library blogs reads, “A new library website wwii.byu.edu features the content of the library’s recent exhibit Remembering World War II: Pearl Harbor and Beyond. The exhibit was one of the most popular in the library’s history and the library wanted a system to allow public access to the materials while preserving unique and delicate artifacts. We invite you to visit a sight and learn more about the library’s collection of World War II items including those that are of special interest to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Read more about the site at BYU’s Newsnet.”

I hope you take advantage and review the above links and see what you can use in your research. We are never too old to learn and educate ourselves whether in genealogy or other topics that interest us. Taking advantage of the Harold B. Lee Library resources or your local library can lead you to a rewarding educational experience.
