Help The Family History Guide with Pass-Along-Cards and AmazonSmile
Handy, fold-over pass-along cards for The Family History Guide are now available. Each double-sided, unfolded card is twice the size of a standard business card; when folded they take up the same vertical and horizontal space as a business card. The cards are printed on high-quality matte stock.

The Family History Guide is a free site for everyone. We have great things in store for the site, so we greatly appreciate your support in helping family history dreams come true. You can support The Family History Guide by passing along the pre-printed pass-along-cards or also by making a direct donation to The Family History Guide Association.

How does all this work? The Family History Guide is an extensive, structured, and sequenced website for learning about genealogy and genealogical research. It has been created by volunteers who are dedicated to helping everyone learn about their family history in a way that makes sense. Realistically, the development, construction, and maintenance of the website cost money. The Family History Guide Association was established to provide funding for the free website. The Family History Guide Association is a 501(c)(3) corporation and as such donations may be tax deductible.

There are several ways to donate. One productive and easy way is to use Amazon Smile and name The Family History Guide Association as your donation partner. Here is an explanation of how Amazon Smile can help The Family History Guide.
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice. 
Every item available for purchase on is also available on AmazonSmile ( at the same price. You will see eligible products marked "Eligible for AmazonSmile donation" on their product detail pages.
It is a good idea to "check out" charitable organizations before making a donation. In the case of The Family History Guide Association, you can find out about the association from the GuideStar website.
 As a member of the Board of Directors, I am very much involved with The Family History Guide website and The Family History Guide Association. Please take the time to find out about The Family History Guide.
