New e-Book Announcement
ONLINE STATE RESOURCES FOR GENEALOGY
compiled by Michael Hait
[From the Introduction]
"The emergence of the Internet has led to many online resources for genealogical research. Subscription genealogy websites, such as Ancestry, Footnote, GenealogyBank, and others, have grown to fill the market for record indexes and images online. Free genealogy sites, such as Find-A-Grave and the U. S. GenWeb Project, have employed the work of tireless volunteers over the years to provide record transcriptions online at no cost. FamilySearch, a product of the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, aspires to combine the best of both, providing record indexes and images online at no cost.
"None of these sites will be examined in this book.
"Many researchers are unaware of the sheer volume and variety of records that have been brought online, at no cost, by government agencies and others active in individual towns, counties, and states. This book will provide a directory to sites that offer record images and indexes nationwide, including state archives; state libraries; state health departments; county clerks; historical societies; genealogical societies; university libraries; public libraries; and others."
This e-book contains active links to over 2,000+ separate online resources available for all 50 states and the District of Columbia. It is available exclusively as a PDF downloadable e-book, so that all you have to do is click on the links to access the websites described.
