Just been looking in my bookmarks and found this that may help quite a few people in their quest in searching that little bit more. Below is a google site to check out: This webpage is devoted to the identification of 19th century German emigrants who came to America from that part of Hannover known today as Emsland, Niedersachsen, and settled in the mid-western United States.
Hi Miriam!
There's a new one in town...LOL

Trails To The Past is up and coming.

 This is free:


It is the people ( well, not all) who lived in Stockholm 1878 - 1926.


This is also free:


It includes maps, but not everything is in English, unfortunately.


This is a neat website

I have created a free Google Earth app entitled GeoGenealogy's Gazetteer of Scotland, in effect a Gazetteer of Gazetteers it has the following features:

Scalable boundary files of the counties(32) and the parishes(891) of Scotland

Each county has links to Genuki, The Family search WIKIWikipedia and   to the Hugh Wallis IGI Search page.

Each county has links to historic county maps including many of David Rumsey's maps of Scotland, the Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland and Family Search historic Maps.

Each parish is linked to it's related Genuki, and Family Search WIKI page with its sources for census and church records

More information and a User guide can be seen at:


You must have Google Earth installed on your computer  (free) to use the GAzetteer


This is a "freeware" appp, there is no charge, simply my way of giving back to all those who have helped me over the years.


 Well done Howard

People like you are worth a million dollars and am sure what you have done will benefit quite a lot of people that use this site.

Howard, folks that can create for the computer amaze me. And you are marvelous! How wonderful and generous of you! Best of luck to you always! Thank you.


P.S. Can you do that for Ireland, too? :-)

Unfortunately I know very little about Ireland and it's Geography in terms of administrative units.

I will give some thought
