Welcome to Your Genealogy Gateway

For years Genealogy Gateway acted as a conduit to genealogy information online. As the years passed, however, the backend of the site became restrictive to further development, making the old Genealogy Gateway obsolete. Today, I've created a new WEB 2.0 design and interface, with a clear mandate to once again become your gateway to genealogy online!

Tired of the same old sites, with the same old links and information? GenGateway will be built with the following goals in mind:

1) Daily Updates.
Genealogy can become stale to most online researchers... I'm dedicated to providing daily updates on the newest genealogy sites and data online. To quickly access this data, just visit this page daily and look at the "new Genealogy" below...

2) Genealogy Help
Most researchers just want data... and a lot of it. But what do you do with that data once you find it? How can that data help you in your research? It's not just about collecting names, it about recording your heritage! And putting all the pieces together in the right place requires a skill set... visit this area when you hit a brick wall in your research!

3) Uniqueness
What can I do to set myself a part from the other genealogy portals available online. How can I present the genealogy data online in a user friendly and interesting manner? Those two questions will be the backbone of how this site is setup and presented to you. Please enjoy, and come back frequently!

So visit the following websites for access to the greatest amount of available genealogy online. Listed by quality first, and then size of collection. Feel free to join and use them all!

Ancestry has long had the largest collection of genealogy data online being an early leader in subscription based genealogy. Because of its extensive census images and indices, and its World War 1 Draft Cards, it has the best collection at this time too. Its census images presently cover all available federal US records, and contains extensive census images from Canada, UK, Scotland, and Germany.
