Genealogy Research Web Links, 5
(Note...see the very beginning of this blog for important steps on how to get started on your genealogy).
www.worldcat.org …. WorldCat. Looking for a publication for any of your ancestor’s surnames, etc.? WorldCat will find it and tell you what library in your zip code vicinity has a copy.
www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page …. Wikipedia. Search for a year and get a chronology of world events from that year. These historic events might give a clue of what prompted your ancestors to pick up and leave the country they had called home for generations.
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~fategenealogy/medterms.htm. Old Medical Terms for use of Genealogists. This is handy for finding out what disease our ancestors died from, in today’s terms.
