Genealogy Today offers Reports for Online Research

Genealogy Today ( announced that it has begun offering a series of reports designed to help genealogists find the best online destinations for their specific research needs. Three new reports are available, each providing a greater number of selection criteria and resources.

"Many visitors have told me they just don't have the time to check every online resource," explained Illya D'Addezio, owner of Genealogy Today. "And some get confused trying to figure out which sites offer the information that they're interested in. These reports were developed to provide simple road maps to dozens of the most popular online databases." The three reports include the Surname Summary Report, Surname Research Report and Ancestor Scout Report.

The Surname Summary Reports, which are being offered free of charge, give a general overview of free and paid resources with the most information available on a specific surname, including published family trees and the following record types: census, birth, education, church, marriage, immigration, military, death and miscellaneous.

The two premium reports narrow down the results by geography (state/county) and time period. The Surname Research Report allows the customer to specify these criteria and receive a custom report prepared by one of our analysts, while the Ancestor Scout Report allows the customer to also specify the given name of an ancestor. In addition to the selection criteria, these two reports provide results from an even greater number of genealogical resources.

"More and more databases come online every week, and we've designed these reports to be flexible so that we can expand the number of results provided," added Illya. "And we'll even update the reports and send customers a fresh copy for a year after their."

A new section of the Genealogy Today web site has been created for this new reporting service that includes descriptions of each report and access to the available Surname Summary Reports. When a free report for a particular surname is not available, visitors can make requests quickly and easily.

The introductory pricing is $14.00 for Surname Research Reports and $24.00 for Ancestor Scout Reports.
