American Ancestors is America’s founding genealogical organization (we've been around since 1845), the most respected name in family history, and one of the leading non-profit organizations in the field. We are dedicated to helping our members research their own family history through our datasets, educational programs, exhibitions, and other inspirational experiences. A membership is the key to unlocking access more than a billion searchable names, award-winning publications, unique materials, and personal help from experts and support staff.
