My favorite genealogy tool to-date is SimpleFamilyTree 1.31 from jdmcox.com. The best part is that it's free, which is just like no money! I use it as a 'scratchpad' for work while I'm in the library. Saves data as gedcom for ease of access.
I had not heard of this. Thanks for sharing, Greg!
i use pilotfamilysearch.com from the mormon church. it has added so many free vital records. i also use find-a-grave often.
Here are the free links I use

I also have alot more that I will post later :)
Which website, Richard?
I have found more on FindaGrave.com than anywhere. It has to be at the TOP of the top 10 list.
My favorite site is ShoeString Genealogy www.shoestringgenealogy.com There are many genealogy forms which can be printed out. It has many presentations which have given me input as to how I might try something different when searching for my ancestors. The calendar tells subject, date and time of several chats. Check it all out... it's FREE!!!

What I wonder is if you hit a brick wall/dead end in searching a particular ancestor and can't find anything with all the free sites it is then time to do a low cost or something like Ancestry? I have a few in the hubby's tree that I am wondering where to go to next to try and find out more. I admit I haven't pursued census info very well but it seems like every time I try the free routes I don't get anywhere. So what do y'all think? Or do?
Out of curiosity is your Neuhard line from Pennsylvania? I might be able to help on his line as there is quite a bit of info available on the family in Pennsylvania. It has been researched by Dennis Kastens and he has published a few books on the family. Just let me know if I can help.
