Resources for Finding Your Ancestors


http://www.libraryvisit.org/research/genealogy-resources/

If you're looking for information on your Osmond ancestry, or if you're not sure you're related to the Osmonds of the OFO, we recommend you do the following:
1.)    First, see if you can find your Osmond ancestors in the OFO Genealogies database or in the world's largest on-line genealogical database at Family Search.  The Family Search website provides you with access to the extensive genealogical records of the Family History Library (FHL) of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
2.)    Contact the OFO by email, explain your possible relationship to the Osmond ancestry, and ask the OFO Research Committee to consider helping you with your research. Such help is given free-of-charge and is done on a first-come and priority-relationship basis.
3.)    Contact a professional genealogist or genealogical research firm to conduct additional research on your behalf.
