My Favorite 10 Sites (or is it?)

After reading other posts by other Geneabloggers, has me looking at my favorite sites.

1. FamilySearch, what else?

2. Ancestry, I search for all clues there can be to find right information.
a. Trees for possible correct information and clues
b. General Index for the incredible cross links to other possible sources
c. Passenger lists

3. WorldConnect at Rootsweb. Excellent if you are looking for clues and looking for the research notes left by tree holders.

4. Geneanet. Subscription only. Rich sources of documents for the ones living in France, Germany, Netherlands region. Lots of Trees with sources.

5. Archive.org. Out of print books. Hathi was good until they start requiring college subscriptions.

6. PDFill. Free Software to convert images into PDFs or convert PDFs into images.

7. Irfanview. Free Software for Windows only. Superior to Windows' own Picture software.

8. FamilySearch Indexing and Zoning. You know what Indexing is but could use more arbitrators. Zoning is a new feature, marking births, marriages and deaths in newspapers to be indexed in FamilySearch Indexing. I did Augusta Georgia, Portland Oregon, Rockford Illinois, Springfield Massachusetts and now doing New Orleans Louisiana. I found one distant relative doing this and saved that article using Irfanview.

9. Findmypast. Find those British relatives.

10. SAMPUBCO. What else but creating good indexes for probates? I use it frequently to track down many records to break through. Recently I used it to solve my friend's mystery of multiple wives.

There are many sites I use to assist.

Forever free browsing of lists!!

Still need good quality paper or image copies for your files or to attach to your online trees? - just look for "Good Quality copy of record? order form" link on each and every list page (paper copy is available for wills only). Cost is very cheap (see onsite for the information). It covers, contrast, re-sizing, cropping and alignment (to make image straight) and correct page numbers. Very Low Price.

Not County Wills of New York and Baltimore City Maryland

Yes I did say "NOT", not "no"

Before I go into details....

The site is 95 percent revamped to be view-able in smartphones, half tablets and full tablets (Ipad, Android, etc). The only missing item is menu bar, something I have a hard time figuring how to do it to make the site even simpler to use.

These New York wills are not digital available online.

Court of Chancery, 1830-1847
These are out of state, even out of country.
England, France and Cuba are included along with out of state.

Court of Appeals, 1770s - 1824
These cases were appealed from the counties of New York.

Supreme Courts, 1787-1927
Albany 1799-1829
New York City 1787-1927

There were two Supreme Courts at a time. One was at Albany and other was held in City Hall in New York City.
