How do I create an account at OnGenealogy?

An account at OnGenealogy is free.

We allow registration for free accounts most Mondays, between 9 am and 6 pm, MT. Signups for new accounts are only open for a short time each week to reduce spam accounts. Registration for new accounts will also be open from 24-27 February, 2021.

Look for the Signup button in the upper right hand corner of the homepage, next to the Login button. If you only see the Login button, the site is closed to registrations that day.

You will need to be able to access your email account to complete the registration process. When you Signup (image below), you type in a Username (that can’t be edited or changed) and an email. Then select Register.

You’ll then go to your email account and look for an email from OnGenealogy with login details.

There will be a link in the email that will take you back to OnGenealogy where you will choose a password for your account (image below). The site will auto-suggest a Strong password. You can accept this password or type your own password over it.

If you forget your password you’ll need to use the Login button, and Password recovery system to get a new password. Site administrators do not have access to any passwords and the only thing we can do is delete your account from the system.
