Father’s Day Gift Guide: Research Your Family History at Ancestry.com (Plus, a World Deluxe Membership Giveaway: $299 Value!)

Nearly 87 percent of Americans are interested in learning more about their family history. I happen to be one of them! My father’s parents arrived in the United States from Russia in the early 1900s, and I’ve always wanted to know more about that side of the family. My grandfather died just six months after I was born, and my grandmother died in 1992, so I can’t ask them any questions. But I recently went to Ancestry.com to see what I could uncover. First, I discovered that finding out more about my family was complicated by the fact that people often misspelled our very Russian surname. I found my grandparents’ names under several different spellings! But during just an hour of searching, I was able to uncover several documents about my grandparents, their exact birth and death dates, their social security numbers (after they became naturalized U.S. citizens), and the name of my grandpa’s brother and his family members. I think I did fairly well in such a short period of time! I also found another person on the site who seems to be related to us and has been researching his/her family tree. So, I may contact this person to see what else I can learn. And I’ll definitely be going back to Ancestry.com to do further research when I have more information from my dad and other living relatives.

If you’re interested in learning more about your family history, here are some easy steps to begin with from Ancestry.com:

1. Start with what you know. Simply enter a few details about yourself, your parents and grandparents into an online family tree. Don’t worry if you don’t have all the facts. This is just the beginning.

2. Search historical records. A simple online search could help you find family members in historical censuses, military and immigration records, newspaper articles and more. Use these records to continue tracing your story back through time. And stay organized by adding what you discover to your online family tree.

3. Ask your family for more details. Family history can be a wonderful excuse to pick up the phone or pay a visit to your loved ones. Ask your relatives for stories, photos and other knowledge about your heritage. Search family photo albums and heirlooms for missing details.

4. Add context to your story. Attach photos, stories and other important documents to your online family tree. Create timelines of your ancestors’ lives. Record interviews with relatives by phone and save them to your tree using tools like the Ancestry.com Storytelling Service.

5. Share your discoveries. Share your rich heritage with your family and document your family history journey by creating a book, calendar, poster or another meaningful gift.

Ancestry.com has more than 6 billion records, and more than 1.6 members who are creating family trees. You can find census records; immigration and naturalization records; birth, marriage and death records; military records; international records; newspapers; and much more!

I could go on and on about all of the wonderful services that are available at Ancestry.com, but I encourage you to go to Ancestry.com yourself to see what they have to offer. Enjoy a free 14-day trial! After that, you can subscribe for just $69 for six months of access to the U.S.-focused collection or take a look at the other packages offered. The best one offers worldwide access for 12 months for $299. Ancestry.com also offers both MAC and PC versions of their Family Tree Maker software package. And at http://ancestry.mycanvas.com, you can incorporate your findings into photo books, family history books, family tree posters, and much more. What great gifts these would make for members of your family!

And speaking of gifts, Father’s Day is almost here. Forget the cologne and t-shirts. Get a special guy a subscription to Ancestry.com! What an amazing and unique gift it would make for a favorite father, grandfather or uncle. You can learn more about Ancestry.com through the following links:

    On my mother's side, we are descended from the pirate, Jean Lafitte. When oil was discovered on his ancestral land in Baritaria Bay, La, the descendents were found and they receive a small stipend each month!

  2. I have recently been working on our family tree. I found information on my grandfather, who was adopted when he was two. What is kind of cool is that my non-biological great grandfather and I were both born on 2/26.

  26. My 8 year old and I been working on our ancestry for a school assignment for her. We found family that fought on both sides of the Civil and Revolutionary wars, which was pretty interesting. Some made it through the wars, others didn't. How fascinating to have cousins fighting on opposite sides of a war, which happened several times in our family. Very opinionated folks!

  27. I would LOVE to win this! Yes, my relatives are all from other countries. My parents emigrated to the US before I was born. As far as famous relatives, I have a very famous cousin in South America (present day) and my grandfather was a very famous international actor of the 1950s and 1960s. My grandfather was married several times and had children in his other marriages that I've never met. I'd love to track those aunts/uncles/cousins down.

It had been a dream of mine to visit there! I also found out that one of the lines on my mothers side fought for the British in the American Revolution!

  89. I have been doing genealogy for many years. My first cousin twice removed was Aileen Allen. She competed in the 1920 Olympics in Fancy Diving placing 4th. She also made 6 movies in Hollywood. In some of them she swam. She also discovered Esther Williams. Now who in my family forgot to tell me about Aileen? Ancestry.com helped me find her for which I am truly grateful.

  163. I've researched our family history on and off for the last 20 years, but don't have an ancestry.com subscription. Most lines I've managed to track to our shores, but not all. And I've love to see what I could trace in Europe.

  174. I haven't found anyone famous in my family yet although my sons are distantly related to President Gerald Ford. My paternal grandparents came from Italy and I see Ancestry is adding new records from there so I would love to win this great giveaway. Thanks!
