AncestryPaths -- Neat FREE resources for Genealogists and Family Historians



It seems that every time I look on Facebook (FB) or open a newsletter lately I am hearing news about information available on AncestryPaths. This is a FREE site and it has some neat links to interesting and useful material available.

For example, I didn’t know that Internet Archive has the Veterans Administration Pension Payment Cards, 1907-1933 online as a digital microfilm collection.  Well, I do now and it’s thanks to AncestryPaths that I learned about this neat collection. 

The information discussed on AncestryPaths is all currently in the public domain via Internet Archive and/or openlibrary.org.  And, with so much information constantly becoming available, it’s always nice when collections with relevance to genealogists and family historians is brought to our attention!

Here are some of the most recent news items that have crossed my path.
The easiest way to see all that the website has to offer is via the site index page.

Did one of the mentioned resources mentioned or available via the site help you with your research?  If so, we always like to hear about successes!
