Research Notes 2020-9-28

Research Notes masthead

Are you looking for online resources to help your research efforts? If so, take a look at the Affordable Research blog. It has an impressive collection of genealogy resources including state archives, digital newspapers and other historical documents.


What makes this even more interesting is the fact that most of the resources found at Affordable Research are freely accessible.


It’s not just resources either. You will also find presentations like Amy Johnson Crow’s A Growing Source for Free Genealogy: Digital Public Library of America.

Take a look at the Affordable Research blog and see for yourself that there’s plenty of affordable resources available to you with more arriving weekly.


The FamilySearch Community is an online social network to help all of us with our research efforts. It costs nothing to join the community and you will find all kinds of support from community members.

Check out the Groups section. It’s amazing. There are groups for locations like Australia, The Netherlands, India and more. There are also groups for using FamilySearch and other available services.

If you are a FamilySearch user, the Community is your new best research friend.


It’s almost the end of the month . . . time to backup the data on your computer!
