Ancestry/Rootsweb Message Boards

Ancestry and Rootsweb “share” message boards, and, as would be expected, there are more here than elsewhere. You can search for a message board by name, location or topic. An advanced search screen allows for more sophisticated searching.

About two million members share more than 400 million entries for free in their Family Trees, Archival Records, Indexes, Family Pictures and Postcards.
