Goodwill Genealogists search for family bibles, photographs, genealogies, letters, and other documents that give richer meaning to our family histories.

Once acquired, we carefully digitize each piece by hand, catalogue and upload them so they can be found by you!

Yes, it takes a lot of time to do this but we delight in making connections between family members and these ancestral artifacts.

If you find family treasure here, you can copy the pages directly from the posts in the Family Pages .  Sometimes, the originals are available for purchase.  Contact us info@goodwillgenealogists.com.

What do we ask if you copy and share materials from our collections?

 Donate!  “I’d give anything to find a photo or letter?”  Here’s your chance to give something! Every donation lets us continue this work. 

  • You must cite Goodwillgenealogists.com as the source for your material,  We  Reserve All Rights to materials on the website. 
  • Absolutely no commerical use of these materials.
  • Please, leave a comment on the family pages to let us know you’ve found something!  Part of the fun is knowing all of our efforts are making a difference to you!
  • Catch the spirit of Goodwill Genealogy!  Tell others that we’re here!

    This is such a great idea! I’ve had the experience myself (I was the giver) and it felt really wonderful to find a descendant via Ancestry.com and send her the originals of the ancestor’s book notes!
    Thanks so much for doing this!

    • Thank you! You’re right, it is a terrific feeling to be the giver! In some ways, being a genealogist is the ultimate social networker–we work in the present to touch the past and connect to the future.
