I started years ago trying to find a brother of grandpa that emigrated to US, Michigan, since I would have second cousins somewhere (maybe). Unfortunately, the branch seems to have died out with his two daughters (moms cousins).
But I first found out about Arkivdigital which is a Swedish company going to all churches and making professional photos of all books, page by page, and sorting them in a searchable format.
Later I found Ancestry.com which has made it even easier and who are also hooked up with Arkivdigital using their photo archive and they are also hooked up with a bunch of US archives as well.
I have traced my paternal line in a straight lineage to 1620 and the funny thing is that all of them (7 generations) have lived within 30 miles to where I grew up until I moved to US. So I guess I'm the black sheep.
