Editor’s Note: Missed the 1st part of this series?  No worries, click on 20 Free and (Relatively) New Genealogy and Family History Resources, Part 1 to see what neat gems were posted last week!


Editor’s Note: As of today, each of the above links worked.  Now, whether the links in any of the identified articles work, I cannot vouch for that.  And, armed with the information provided, it should be relatively easy to get to determine where the discussed database currently resides.  If you get really stuck, drop me an email and I’ll try to ferret out the recalcitrant link or cross out my entry in the above list!
