Learn More About our New Experience on Archives.com

Something look different? 

To better serve our users, we've created a new experience for you on Archives.com. Due to an older infrastructure, we are not able to continue to develop our features or expand our collections on the old Archives.com. We've created this new experience for you to give you access to more content 

With this upgrade, in the coming months, you can expect the following: 

  • Updated collections 
  • Improved ancestor hints and discoveries on the site and through email 
  • A brand new tree experience (coming soon!) 
  • Connections and insights on ancestors you never knew you had (coming soon!)
