It isn’t a reference to historic figures; it is a way to investigate and document individual/family genealogies. You can enter information that you already have, and expand it; or, if you are a beginner, you can follow the suggestions, learn, and build a family tree. My only cautionary note is document, document, document; family legends are great, but a birth certificate in hand is priceless! :-) Just the basic fee gives you access to censuses, certificates, other trees, books, wills, maps, etc etc etc. by which and with whose indexing you can do your own research to your own standards (without indexing, this material is much harder to use). Good luck — it’s great adventuring!

I have tried to look up many of my family members that have been huge contributors to history. I can’t find anyone. However it will allow me to pay a so called expert $1900 to do the research for me. What a rip off.
