Of course I had heard of Ancestry.com, but I had no idea of the amount of amazing and invaluable information that can be found within seconds. In June this year, I subscribed to the World Deluxe membership and found passenger lists, crew lists, birth and death records, from both the USA and Sweden. Ancestry.com performs the search for you if you know a name, a year, and a place..
From now on, I am going to recommend Ancestry.com as the best and easiest gateway to historical documents about your ancestors.
Try Ancestry.com here.
