About Us

OnGenealogy is a directory of online and onsite genealogy and family history records and resources and uses geocoding to pin these to a map.

This site is still under development, please pardon the mess. If you have suggestions for changes that would be helpful, please email [email protected] and we’ll see if we can make them happen.

Our site has keyword and location search tools that display your search results on a map. This allows you to visualize the area you’re investigating. We also include the business or resource address and contact information as well as social media connect buttons so you can quickly go to their YouTube tutorial, join their Facebook group, or follow their Pinterest board, etc.

Anyone can create a free user account at OnGenealogy. With a user account you’re be able to:
• create a profile
• comment on posts
• review listings (coming soon)
• create an event, like a webinar, genealogy class, society meeting, etc (we’re still working on this one)
• create a favorites list (select the heart on any individual listing and it will be added to your favorites)

For a small fee you’ll be able to:
• create a listing if you own a genealogy or family history related site (please don’t create listings for sites you don’t own)
• claim a listing if you’re the owner

If you’d like to create or claim a listing, there will be a $2.00/year fee. This fee is intended as a barrier to entry for spam listings and as an incentive to listing owners to keep your listing updated to reflect any changes on your website.

You can also send an email to [email protected] requesting a resource listing and provide any photos/descriptions/contact info/social media sites; OnGenealogy will be the owner/final editor of these listings.

Thanks for your interest and any suggestions for improving this site and making it more useful to owners and researchers.

  1. I’m just beginning to get acquainted with your site. Can you help me tracing my African American roots and how to use “AfriGeneas – African Ancestored Genealogy”?
