GenealogyPlace.com was conceived by Frank and Cindy Carman to fill a void
in the genealogy Internet world. Genealogists have had access to only scanty
lists of genealogy links relative to the millions that exist on the Internet
and the thousands that are being added on a regular basis. It was felt that
the time had come for a Genealogy Search Engine that was dedicated to serving
the genealogists in their efforts to locate relavent genealogical data on the
Internet. Hence, GenealogyPlace.com was born. We are dedicated to making
this genealogy portal the most comprehensive and - at the same time - the
easiest to use, so that you, our fellow genealogist, will be able to find
links to those long lost records with greater ease.
The following is a little background about us:
