Editor’s Note: This is a continuation of the series published in January & February – 20 Free and (Relatively) New Genealogy and Family History Resources (see blog for parts 1-6 published in February and March 2015).  Know of a neat and/or overlooked database that you think Upfront With NGS members would benefit from knowing about?  Drop an email to UpFront@ngsgenealogy.org.

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!
