The Good

  • 7-Day Free Trial
  • Extensive Records and Capabilities
  • Filtering by State

7-Day Free Trial

GenealogyBank offers a 7-day free trial for its services. The free trial gives you unlimited access to everything GenealogyBank has to offer. This is convenient for customers looking to get to know the website and its offerings before fully committing to the paid service.

Extensive Records and Capabilities

GenealogyBank has newspaper records dating back from 1690 to today, with 95% of the newspapers being exclusive to GenealogyBank. You can use these records to search your family history, save and organize records, and filter results by keywords, proximity, location, newspaper, and date.

GenealogyBank also gives you access to the following:

  • Over two billion genealogy records
  • World’s largest online obituary collection
  • Over 300 years of U.S. newspaper coverage
  • 11,000 nationwide newspaper titles
  • Billions of births, marriages, and engagement notices

Filtering by State

When searching through GenealogyBank’s records, you can filter the results by state. This makes it easier to narrow the results and only show you state records you are interested in. This also makes it simpler for you to find records pertaining to family members in certain states.

The Bad

  • No DNA Testing
  • Payment Required for Free Trial

No DNA Testing

GenealogyBank does not offer DNA testing on its website. If you are looking for a DNA test to pair with historical records, you will have to purchase one elsewhere.

Payment Required for Free Trial

GenealogyBank requires you to enter your credit card information before receiving your free trial. Once your seven free days are over, GenealogyBank will charge your card based on which membership you chose when signing up. Two membership types are available: A 6-month membership ($8.32 per month billed in one payment of $49.95) and a monthly membership ($19.95 billed monthly).

The Bottom Line

GenealogyBank offers extensive historical records dating all the way back to 1690. Its website includes more than two billion genealogy records, many of which are exclusive to GenealogyBank. A 7-day free trial is available, and afterward, you will pay $49.95 upfront for a 6-month membership or $19.95 per month. You need to provide a credit card before receiving your free trial.

Unfortunately, GenealogyBank does not offer DNA testing, so if you want that in addition to historical records, we suggest looking into other genealogy service providers that offer DNA testing.
