2010 Best State Websites

Family Tree Magazine has compiled a list of 75 stellar sites for doing research from Alabama to Wyoming. These are all state-focused websites.

Since we’ve been talking about National Archives Month and Family History Month, what a great resource to help you join in this month-long celebration of your ancestry!

And, this Family Tree Magazine article reminds us “If you can’t visit your ancestor’s state archives in person, find out whether you can borrow materials or order photocopies through interlibrary loan. Many archives offer research services for a fee, or you can hire a local researcher to do lookups for you.”

So, just because you may not physically be able to visit the state archive that may hold your ancestors' secrets, this doesn’t mean that you can’t gain access to the wonderful collection of materials it holds.
