US & Canada birth, marriage and death records
Birth, marriage and death (BMD) records contain details on where and when your ancestors were born, married and died. They form the building blocks of your family history research. Notable record sets in our Starter Package are CA births and marriages, NY marriages and SC deaths. Please note that our comprehensive marriage collection, spanning 360 years, is included in our Premium Package.
US immigration & travel records
Discover the people who crossed an ocean to become your first American ancestors in our travel and migration records. This invaluable resource includes records of people leaving the UK between 1890 and 1960, and passenger lists from states including Florida and California.
Historic newspapers are a valuable – and often underutilized – resource for family history researchers. They contain family announcements, details about criminal cases, military commendations and much more. See what you can discover in their pages.
If you're one of the millions of Americans with British or Irish heritage, our UK and Ireland census records are an essential piece of your family history puzzle. They contain the names of everyone in a household, as well as ages, occupations and more.
