Ancestor Info is a free access genealogy
database, made up of dozens of smaller databases. We are different from
many of the databases on the internet, because we own all of the materials we
index. When you order information from us, we send you the original item or we
copy the information directly from the original source.
We have hundreds of unique antiquarian
sources with thousands of citations. Many of these books, documents and
historical records are one of a kind or are extremely rare, but we have indexed
them to assist in your research. We index biographies, directories, yearbooks,
alumni guides, obituaries (necrology), tax books, journals, magazines etc... We
might have ads from the old family business or family farm, salary or school
records, an obituary which ranges from one paragraph to several pages long or
records of war service. When we send you copies of this type of information, we
also send the title page, any lists of abbreviations or other relevant pages.
We have thousands of biographies ranging
from one paragraph to several pages long, and many of these include a photo,
portrait or engraving. During the late 1800's and during the 1920's, (before the
Great Depression came along) almost every area of the country did Who's Who type
books of locally prominent people, and many clubs and civic groups did a
directory featuring biographies and sometimes photos of their members. So even
if your ancestor was not rich and famous, we might have them listed.
If your ancestors are in one of our high school or college
yearbooks, we can send you copies of their photo or listing, but we also send
copies of the school calendar, general interest photos of the school and
classmates, and there is usually a section with jokes or corny stories. It is
almost like visiting the school 75 years ago, while your ancestors were young.
Some yearbooks also include information on faculty and alumni.
Our collection of several hundred
original, vintage photographs includes antique photos of all types;
cabinet cards, tintypes, carte-de-visite (CDV's), portraits and real photo
postcards (RPPC). We also have photo albums, group photos from family reunions,
the workplace and schools. Most of these photos are over 75 years old.
Our ephemera collection has over 1,000
pieces includes vintage or antique documents, letters, billheads,
invoices, postcards, wedding invitations, business cards, prescriptions,
matchbook covers, Victorian trade cards, school programs and school souvenirs.
Most of these items range from 50 to over 125 years old.
Whether you are researching your family roots (or lineage), we
can help. Please check our database for all the branches
and surnames from your family tree. We have also been able to assist
writers and collectors in their background research on the history of people or
companies in our database. We cover everything from birth records to obituaries,
military service during the Civil War and World War 1, and almost every aspect
of daily life and day to day business in the late 1800's and early 1900's.
While we charge a fee to send copies of information or original
items, it is a small price to pay to find potentially valuable information from
long ago (and it may even help with that brick wall you have been facing in your
