Usenet Newsgroups Provider NewsDemon.com now provides access to an extensive collection of newsgroups related to the topic of genealogy, making genealogy research with Usenet easier.  This allows researchers to take advantage of extensive research conducted by the newsgroup community going back to 1995. 

Genealogy is the study of a family ¬ís lineage and ancestry. Genealogy covers everything from a family tree to when and how people lived almost a century ago. The word genealogy is derived from the Greek, and means the study of family history and descent. 

On Usenet, the objective of genealogical research is to identify ancestors and their family relationships. At a basic level, identifying and recording the family tree by determining such things as date and place of birth, names of parents, date and place of marriage, names of children, and date and place of death.

NewsDemon.com also helps educate USENET users about newsgroups. The site provides a directory of topics and has collected thousands of pages of information about the newsgroups within the topics. When you click on a link, you can drill down deep into a topic until you eventually find the charter for the groups under that topic. A charter is the "set of rules and guidelines" which supposedly govern the users of that group.

Genealogy Research with Usenet Newsgroups
With Usenet, genealogy is easier to research than at any other time in history. Despite the large amount of false information online, Usenet and corresponding Newsgroups cater to many legitimate and incredibly valuable genealogy resources available. This helps people who, fifty years ago, would have spent years tracking down family roots do so in months, or even weeks.

Accessing Genealogy on Usenet
In order to access these newsgroups, it's required to have access to Usenet. NewsDemon provides a free public server for this purpose. Just use the nntp address, login, and password found here. No strings attached. Although some internet service providers allow free access to these newsgroups, many times messages are incomplete or scrambled, or they only cover a very small timeframe.

It is recommended that a premium Usenet provider such as Newsdemon.com be used, in order to properly access the rich information available on genealogy that Usenet can provide. Newsdemon.com provides free access to these genealogy newsgroups and paid access to 1000s of other newsgroups, completely uncensored. Additionally, text newsgroups range to about 800-1000 days old. These newsgroups allows members to access messages and follow forum-type conversations more than 2 years old, an important factor when following genealogy topics and conversations.

Secondly, you will need a Newsreader, a client that downloads the messages and organizes them accordingly, to access genealogy newsgroups. With Newsdemon.com Usenet access, Newsrover, an award winning Newsreader is available free with membership. A tutorial on how to set-up Newsrover for Usenet and Newsgroup access is also available. The video tutorial walks the user through installation and set-up of Newsrover. 

Once you have your Usenet account and Newsreader set-up, you can search for Genealogy Newsgroups that meets your specific needs.
