About the United States Portal

The United States portal is created in order to facilitate those researching ancestors or relatives in the United States or elsewhere in the world but with American roots.

We encourage everyone with links in the United States to communicate and explore a common ancestry.

In this portal you will find sources and discussions that will help you with your research. In case you have a particular genealogical challenge, or if you have interesting information to share, simply start a discussion about it.

What can you do here?

  • Ask questions
  • Collaborate on your research
  • Share knowledge you have gained as you've done your own research in a specific area.
  • Start your own related project.
  • Add your profiles.
  • Start or take part in a discussion.

In order to further facilitate your search, we can create sub-projects for all the States in America. Please feel free to add your state to the list below.
