Success Stories

Each Information Wanted Ad is full of genealogical information that can provide descendants with information that cannot be found in the census and that can be used to fill in missing information on family trees. In these testimonials, our users let us know what it meant to them to find advertisements naming their ancestors.

We collect these stories and, with permission, share them on our site because we want our users to know how they can use the collection in their own genealogical work.

Please consider sharing your family story with us. When you submit a Success Story, we will follow up with an email to clarify the details you would like to share.
