The Library of Congress has one of the world's premier collections of U.S. and foreign genealogical and local historical publications. The Library's genealogy collection began as early as 1815 with the purchase of Thomas Jefferson's library.
The USGenWeb Project was launched in 1996, initially as genealogy database for Kentucky. Since then, it's branched out to incorporate genealogy records for all 50 states, which are treated to a comprehensive range of census records, military records, obituaries, newspapers, and maps. This makes it one of the most detailed free ancestry websites on the web, although it has to be noted that its site map is quite sprawling and takes some getting used to before you can navigate it with ease. That said, it features a number of detailed guides on how to conduct your own ancestry search, including a helpful beginner's guide.
