• Make the Titles descriptive and short
  • Provide as many details in the "Description" as possible to give your bidders the ability to make a well informed bid. Some good information that you could include:
    • Birth date/location
    • Death date/location
    • Parent's information
    • Children information
    • Known places they've lived
    • Public Records available
  • DO NOT provide your email address, physical address, phone number, or any other sensitive information. This is for YOUR protection. RootsBid's features should be a sufficient way to communicate. If a bidder is requesting this information, please contact us before giving out any information.
  • If links to records aren't available, you can upload any files you choose for bidders to view before providing a bid.
  • Use "Specific Location" if you are looking for information that can best found by research within that location. This will also allow bidders to find your project better.
  • Use keywords to help potential bidders find your project better. Separate keywords by commas. For instance: Military Records, posterity, parents, United Kingdom
