World Genealogy

Through the power of the Internet, the world is at our fingertips - which certainly comes in handy when it comes to researching our genealogy.

The likelihood that our ancestors came from the country in which we currently live is slim, so finding records and vital statistics for our distant relatives may be a bit of a challenge. However, there are a number of websites that allow individuals to search genealogy records for their family members from different countries.

In fact, you may be able to search for genealogy records from any number of regions around the world, including Africa, the Caribbean, Central America, Europe, Mediterranean, the Middle East, the Pacific, South America, and North America, just to name a few.

Because world genealogy websites are typically broken down into countries or regions of the world, it makes locating information, data and records from different countries a much easier process. You may want to keep in mind, however, that genealogy records for other countries may not be available in English, so you may have to use translation methods to obtain the information you need. The availability of records, including vital statistics, from other countries may be limited due, in part, to a variety of factors, including privacy laws within the country and the quality of the records.
