Live Roots

Live Roots, from Genealogy Today founder Illya D'Addezio, is a new genealogy search engine specifically for use by genealogists. According to its about page, "Live Roots is an information resource that assists you with locating genealogical resources, including both those that are accessible online and other which may require assistance from another researcher." You can read about Live Roots at it's about page at You can also read what other bloggers have to say about it at,, and

One of the things I love about Live Roots is it provides a daily update of what new databases are available from various genealogy websites like Ancestry and World Vital Records. An icon to the left of the title tells you if the record is a newspaper or transcription. Then you are provided the title name, whether there is a fee for that database and where it is available.
