Genealogy Today is one of those sites that will have you coming back for many tomorrows. A wealth of information nicely organized by subjects, fully searchable and another feature I like, their history section of new additions to the site chronologically. There is so much available here, be sure to bookmark it!
Then hop on over to Genealogy Sleuth and check out the plethora of links they have there for your browsing pleasure. Databases that charge a fee are marked $ and the links are broken down into topics. There are over one hundred links on this site and that should keep your index finger in good shape!
I happened upon this site from another site I frequently visit and mentioned here in the past. Lost Souls Genealogy Project is a place where you can talk about your research ups and downs, find links to information that may be helpful and is beginning to build databases of information for genealogists.
I particularly like their new and growing links to maps in the US and the US timeline. They also have a nice selection of links that could lead you to breaking through that brick wall.
Beginner or not, there are times we can all use a little advice in our genealogical endeavors. I happened to stumble upon The Armchair Genealogist while doing a bit of research on my own families and was impressed with the information, tips and links at this blog. So while you are enjoying your morning coffee, visit the Armchair Genealogist.
If you are a Pennsylvania researcher, you need to head over to Closson Press and check out their wide selection of books for the genealogist, all very reasonably priced. I’ve ordered a few and have found valuable information on my relatives I would not have otherwise known. It helps that the people at Closson are helpful and friendly. I give them two thumbs up!
Very little information is free to genealogists on the Web. It seems like every time you turn around, you have to pay a fee for this and a fee for that. Philadelphia is no exception. You can search Philadelphia deeds, from 1683 to 1974, for a fee. The thing that irks me is the fee is a flat $100 for a year. One hundred dollars? Couldn’t they have made it $10 for a month of searches? Or for 10 searches? One hundred dollars? I think that is a bit excessive. I have one property that I want to research. That is it. I’m not willing to pay $100 to do it. Come on Philly, can’t you cut us genealogists a break?
