About Ancestral FIndings

About Me

I'm hopeful these ebooks will provide you with plenty of food for thought in your genealogy adventures. I offer these ebooks free to you because not everyone can spend thousands of dollars on their genealogy research.


Contributions by you entirely support Ancestral Findings, and they are greatly appreciated but not required​. You can do so by Clicking Here. Thank you so much!


More than 25 years ago, I began this quest into genealogical research. Recently diagnosed with Crohn's disease and a blood disorder, I found myself home for months at a time, and I used that time to study genealogy records and discover the meaning behind my Moneymaker surname.


I collected books, conducted research in libraries, and used genealogy CD-ROMs to further my desire to learn more about my family. After collecting hundreds of books and thousands of documents relating to this genealogical adventure, I wanted to share this information with others.


I first used America Online to reach out to other family members and share the current information I had gathered. Within the first week, I had hundreds of inquiries about family history from family members and people reaching out for information.


On December 15, 1995, I created Ancestral Findings. I received more than 1,000 free lookup requests for the first few months. I now receive thousands a month from people like you looking for more information about their genealogy. 


You can use Ancestral Findings to cross-reference information you already have and to learn more about the people in your family who you thought were forever lost to you.
