While there are many things you should do in a search, including consulting family members and checking official records, it is always good to use genealogy software for your search.


Many types of genealogy software are available for free. Some of it, however, may be limited. Some will be available to you for free for a limited period of time, and some may not have all of the options and services available to you unless you purchase the full version. Therefore, it is important to use the genealogy software that you use to your full advantage.
