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?

    Wow! Would love to be part of this wonderful site. I am just “wet behind the ears” when it comes to researching family history. I have a brick wall in my own family history right now, trying to break it down.

    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!
