This is a country portal project, which is intended as a resource for users from a particular country. It may contain advice on how best to use Geni within your country, such as profile naming conventions, translation instructions, where to find genealogy resources, and more. You may join the project to contribute, or follow it if you only want to receive notifications of new discussions. Note that profiles cannot be added to country portal projects.

Welcome to the USA Portal!

The USA Portal is here to facilitate those researching ancestors or relatives in the United States, or elsewhere in the world but with American roots.
