|Interactive Genealogy combines searches and books for genealogy, living people, history, and travel by state and keyword, because our family's history was sometimes changed by what was happening around them and what was available where they lived. DNA genealogy helps to see if others of the same surname are related.|

Before internet searches, we looked for the names of our ancestor's family by scrolling through microfilm copies.

DATE of DEATH and LOCATION SEARCHES
SSDI (Social Security Death Index) SEARCHES
*TIP: Sometimes you can find where someone lives from an on-line obituary of one of their close relatives.
Search the SSDI to find the town where the deceased person lived, and with that info, check obituaries from their local online newspaper.
|Social Security Death Index (SSDI)|
Did your US ancesters have Social Security? It began 1/1/1937.
The Death Master File (DMF) from the Social Security Administration (SSA) is created from internal SSA records of deceased persons possessing social security numbers and whose deaths were reported to the SSA. If someone is missing from the list, it may be that the benefit was never requested, an error was made on the form requesting the benefit, or an error was made when entering the information into the SSDI.

"Soc.roots" was replaced by soc.genealogy.misc and six others in 1994
(1993) Dubbed "The History Network", HNSource, was the second web site openned to the public on March 6, 1993, by its creator, Dr. Lynn H. Nelson, professor of history at the University of Kansas. The first connections went to on-line library catalogues through a HyTelnet facility, to index data bases and FTP sites already containing materials relevant to historical studies. HNSouce also provided links to a full-text document archive, world-wide gophers, several works on the use of the Internet, some Gutenberg electronic texts, and other facilities. These were the days of Bitnet, dialing up Telnet, newsgroups on Usenet, and Free-Net bulletin boards (DFN, DAFN). More internet history.
* (pre-internet: 1987) Alf Christophersen launched the ROOTS-L mailing list in December 1987. * (pre-internet: 1989) Karen Isaacson began maintenance of the RootsWeb Surname List in 1989, when everything was done with file archives and such. * (1993) By around 1993, the Web had gotten started and Steven Woods had created the first Web-based search engine for the Rootsweb Surname List.
(1996) "Our goal with Ancestry was to build the largest online genealogy database and subscription service in the world."
(1998) "We launched this free service in December 1998 and quickly became one of the fastest growing community web sites in history, gaining 1 million registered users in its first 140 days."
