We are all proud of where we come from. Whether you’re a first-generation immigrant, or you have just discovered your roots by taking a DNA test, your national heritage is an intrinsic part of who you are. Your international roots tell you about a lot more than just yourself—knowing where you come from is an integral step to learning about your ancestors.

FamilySearch’s country pages provide resources for those seeking to learn more about their heritage across the globe. Each page contains information that teaches where your family comes from, gives resources to help you start your research, and provides links to FamilySearch’s records collections for that country.

Explore the FamilySearch country pages by clicking the links below! You might learn something about yourself, where you come from, or the world around you.

  1. The central thrust here is good and has great potential, for sure. In seeking to encourage each of my seven children into adulthood I have found it crucial to be sensitive to the nuances of the individual. For some their heritage from country X or Y becomes a motivator, others seem ambivelent to such; conceive of life in other frameworks; respond to other stimulae. Easily as fundemental, teach might of the agency of man, we were created to act and not be acted upon, we came richly endowed with talents and capacities; our Creator loves us each one, regardless, and blesses us with opportunity. Parenting is indeed an elementary course in godhood.

  2. What do you have on the Netherlands? My emigrant ancestor came with the Dutch Settlers to Fort Orange (later Albany, New York) about 1656. His wife told a Notary Public that her husband was from Beerhey. I found Beerhey Island on Google about a year or two ago. Now it is longer there. Do you have maps or a book which describes Beerhey Island? When others see that (as his birthplace) on Family Search, I want them to be able to access information about it.

  3. I thinks its great the records you are able to access and save
    I would like records on” Barbados”?
    also how to actually access them from the country or with assistance
    Does the Church have a Family history centre in Barbados

    cheers linda
