Family History Month ~ October 2014
A Month of Great Resources & Inspirations
for Genealogy Research
In honor of Family History Month, we WikiChicks would like to share a different genealogy research resource or other family history inspiration each day of the month. You could probably also read this as a "Things I Am Thankful For" list, because without some of these resources our well-formed, dense-with-leaves family trees might still be mere saplings.
Day 1 - FamilySearch. Hands down the best, biggest, highest quality, and best of all FREE, genealogy research site on the Internet. From their millions of scanned images of original documents and their army of dedicated indexing volunteers, to their boundless wealth of instructional information, if you are going to start anywhere, THIS IS THE PLACE. :) http://www.FamilySearch.org
Day 2- Cyndi's List. Cyndi's List is the website you should consult with every research
project. Don't know about resources for Alabama? Cyndi's List has that covered! Not sure what that “ague” diagnoses on your great-aunt’s death certificate is? consult Cyndi’s List! I remember in the good old days of genealogy when you could buy Cyndi’s List in book form.Good thing you can’t do that now. With over 332, 812 links I don’t have the arm strength to carry that kind of book around!
