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…

I have just received an email from The Sprague Project. These updates used to arrive every month or so, but it is now two years since the last one.
I know the project is still alive and well, not least because of the webmaster, A. Arnold Sprague's, generous contributions to TNG users, but was becoming concerned that perhaps old age is creeping up on…Continue

Back on January 11, 2011 I wrote a post entitled, "Update on the reliability of flashdrives." I am certainly not immune to believing Internet Myths. I am fan of the MythBusters program on TV (which I am too busy to watch) but interestingly some of the myths they set out to disprove actually turn out to be true. But the opposite is very much more likely. Information passed around on the Internet…Continue

I noticed that this thread has been inactive. Did your application for DAR go through, or are you still working on it?

I spend a lot of time flying back and forth between Houston and Los Angeles to visit my family. The flight is 3 hours and last year I made a commitment to spend that three hour time period working on sorting, identifying and tagging all of my digital photos. By the time we take off, get our complimentary beverages, prepare for the descent, it probably works out to about 2 hours but that time I have totally dedicated to this task. I decided to focus this time on this…Continue

Every now and then I have to take a break from the genealogy. I don't know why. I am addicted to the core, but I think it has something to do with interference from the present--children to raise, holidays to celebrate, new memories to forge.
The Nave/Naves branch of my father's family from Kentucky is a serious thorn in my side. Even after a visit to Kentucky this summer I am not much closer to finding the origins of Thomas Naves (1823-1866) who was married to Mary…Continue

Matthew Taylor and his wife Janet Wilson came from Northern Ireland in 1721 and settled in Nutfield, now Derry, New Hampshire. Matthew was one of the original proprietors of the settlement. He was born in 1690 and he died 26 January 1770 near Beaver Lake. They had ten children and many descendants who lived in New Hampshire and Nova Scotia. Matthew and his sons, Adam and Samuel Taylor, are buried in Forest Hill Cemetery in Derry.
The descendants are planning a reunion for August…Continue

I received an interesting enquiry today (through my website) regarding a connection between John Lyon of Ryslippe and the Douglas family. I immediately recognised John Lyon (1510-1592) as the founder of Harrow School, but was not aware of his connection, through the Lyons of Glamis Castle to the Douglas family.
For those not clued up with British geography, Ruislip, to give it the modern spelling, is but a short ride on the…Continue

1686 BROOKLYN DUTCH REFORMED CHURCH MEMBERSHIP LIST
It was difficult to prevail upon any settled clergyman to leave his charge in Holland and brave the trials of a newly settled country of Nieuw Amsterdam, yet two newly ordained ministers--Hermanus Blom and Henricus Selyns--did just that.

After scanning London baptism records multiple times for my Smith ancestors I was confused why I found every baptism record for my ancestors siblings but not for the record for my ancestor Mary Ann Smith?
Well today I found it! Her record had a hyphen in it (Mary-Ann Smith). This and several other hyphenated records did not show up with all the others. So, if you are searching Parish records, remember names are often mispelled or perhaps your missing record has a hyphen…Continue
