Family Tree Magazine Best 2014 State Websites



Periodically Family Tree Magazine creates a “best” of list for genealogy websites.  The most recent one is “75 Best Genealogy Websites for US States in 2014.”

Many of the sites listed are for the state archives and/or library or state historical society and there are some other gems listed also including newspaper collections, cemetery records, and more.

For all the research I have done in Arkansas, I wasn’t familiar with Arkansas Ties. Or a birth record information from South Dakota.  While for North Dakota we find the Genealogy and Biography page for the North Dakota State University archives.

As we often mention, even if you have visited a listed website, it might be time to revisit it.  These websites are constantly evolving, making more and more material available to researchers.

Additionally, “new-to-you” websites might be listed for a locale of interest to you.  Maybe you will be pleasantly surprised by being able to access some new resources.

Are there any “US States” genealogy websites that you think should have been included?
