Genealogy Bank is a genealogical research site operated out of Naples, Florida in the USA. The site launched in 2006 and is run by CEO Dan Jones. The site offers one of the largest collections of digitized newspapers from the USA available online. Newspapers dating back as far as 1690 are available from all 50 states in the USA in the genealogy bank database to assist users with their research into their family history. Other resources available on the site include Social Security Death Index records, obituaries, historical books, and government documents and records. Genealogy Bank offers some 2 billion plus records to its users, including 9,000 newspaper archives to provide users with access to birth and marriage announcements, obituaries, letters, speeches, news from various locations, photographs, illustrations, opinion pieces, and historical advertisements.

A small amount of information about a name is available without joining, but these results include only very basic information about possibly available records. To access full records and see the entire database of available information requires a paid membership to the site. A free trial is available for 7-days, with periodic offers for a 30-day trial. Free trials automatically convert to a paid monthly membership if not cancelled during the free trial. Paid memberships are available in various tiers that range in price from $5.83 to $19.95 per month.

All memberships renew automatically, each month unless cancelled by the member. There is no minimum membership term and generally speaking, monthly memberships can be cancelled at any time without penalty.
