Data is provided online in two different databases to everybody who is interested in family history. familysearch.org allows to search directly for ancestors. Information about them are gathered from church and civil records, lists of the immigration authorities and different censuses in the US. Using the OPAC of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City you can find references to microfilms or microfiches of the original documents. They are sent by the Family History Library to your next Family History Research Center
