The “genealogy giants”, all provide tools and records for researching family trees online. But which should you use? Learn why you should be familiar with all four sites; subscription and free access options; and how they compare for historical record content, family trees, and DNA tools. Get insider tips on each site's best features, and cautions or challenges while working with each. This has been an extremely popular lecture with audiences at RootsTech, RootsTech London, Legacy Tree Genealogists, and elsewhere.


Sunny Morton is an award-winning writer and a globally popular lecturer. She is a long-time Contributing Editor at Family Tree Magazine, Contributing Editor and Content Manager for Your DNA Guide, frequent contributor to the blog at FamilySearch (the world's biggest free genealogy website), and past Editor of Ohio Genealogy News. Known internationally for her astute comparisons of the giant genealogy websites, she is author of How to Find Your Family History in U.S. Church Records, with Harold Henderson, CG, and Story of My Life: A Workbook for Preserving Your Legacynow in its 2nd edition.
