Ten Places You Didn't Think To Look

There are a dozen good places to find a date of birth, but did you know some of those same resources could be holding much more difficult-to-come-by information, too?

Earlier this month posted a very good "research help" article in their blog listing places to find information about your ancestors that may not have made it to your research log.  You can click here to read it.

Regardless of which family tree program you may be using, and even if you aren't using any of them, each of them has a blog you can subscribe to.  In addition, there are hundreds of other blogs devoted to genealogy - many of them specific to a certain aspect of family history research.  

If you find the idea of having a zillion emails showing up in your inbox every day a bit overwhelming, consider a service such as Feedly which organizes all your on-line reading in one place where you can peruse it at your leisure.

You can also download an app to your phone or tablet called Pocket which stores all those things you want to read until later when you have more time.

There are a lot of resources on the Internet.  You are missing out if you aren't taking advantage of them!

Have a great weekend!
