OriginalAncestry is excited to offer original period documents to the public to provide another resource for discovering your family history! I have been collecting pre-1900 documents for the past fifteen years in hopes of providing an additional resource for researchers of family history. In many cases, the answer to a genealogical brick wall can be found in a document that an individual owns versus a government archive. The collection will be archived onto the site over time. This is a small retail site, and archiving will take a great deal of time, so keep checking back to see if a document shows up with information on one of your ancestors! Thank you for visiting!
