The Vast Majority of Genealogy Records Still Can’t Be Found Online: Here’s How to Locate Them

by Pinterest

With billions of records now online, many of them free and open to all, is there really still an absolute need for offline research?

Maybe we won’t find the missing 90% of records proclaimed by the purists, but there’s no way the trip won’t be worth it.
