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.
OnGenealogy 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 create a free user account at OnGenealogy. With a user account you’re able to:
• create a profile
• comment on posts
• create a favorites list (select the heart on any individual listing and it will be added to your favorites)
Please email [email protected] if you’d like to:
• create an event, like a webinar, genealogy class, society meeting, etc
• 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; after I’ve confirmed you’re the owner of the site, you’ll be given the rights to edit that listing
• request a listing or event be created by OnGenealogy
OnGenealogy is owned by Mike & Alyson Mansfield and we are polar opposites.
This is Alyson. I primarily run this site. I graduated with a degree in Economics and do family history for fun. Whenever I’m stuck in my research, Mike offhandedly throws me a scrap of knowledge and redirects my efforts. I used to say, “everyone should know about that site” and then I decided to do something about it. I started OnGenealogy to share resources. Because I have no sense of direction I use a map on the site. My strength is I’m not a professional genealogist. I know people do family history for many different reasons and I try not to judge the how or why; I’m just providing resources and ideas. I like to spotlight genealogy businesses and resource owners to help their businesses and to help hobbyists find new ways to pursue their hobby.
Mike works full-time for MyHeritage.com and has worked previously for Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org. He currently collects content for MyHeritage and has a knack for knowing where to find record collections. He has a B.A. in Computer Science and a Masters in Library Sciences. He took some genealogy classes in college and loves that he’s able to marry his hobby with his career. He’ll occasionally find time to share a blog post but he enjoys his day job at MyHeritage which doesn’t leave much time for side projects. He prefers careful, thorough, well-cited research but understands that’s not everyone’s cup of tea.
Thanks for your interest in our site and please feel free to email [email protected] with any suggestions for improving this site and making it more useful to businesses and researchers.
