This year's theme, "Genealogy Without Borders," is based on the simple idea that genealogical research can be done almost without ever having to leave your home. Whether you're looking for a headstone picture in England or a 1921 Canadian Census data image, the Internet provides access to thousands of documents to thousands of people.
