Question by dsrspring: What is the best and cheapest way to explore your Genealogy on the computer?
I have always been interested in my family Genealogy, but have not idea where to start. My maiden name is very unusual and my father really doesn’t no much about his family, so I would love to know where we originate from.

You can start with http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/frameset_search.asp
keep in mind that many of the facts on this website are unconfirmed, so it is very important to look on the website for the source given for each record they mention. If it is a historical document, it will say so. If it is “submitted by a church member,” or anything other than a census record or a parish church record, you can use it to try to find a historical record in that vicinity (ie, go on www.rootsweb.com and near the bottom of the page there is a Locality link, which will allow you to find a message board for any county or country in the world – go to the board and ask if anyone can look for a record to match the info you have) .
Rootsweb also has a message board section for specific surnames. If you can find a message board for your surname, you can post requests for help there.
