Minnesota Obituary Project - The USGenWeb Archives Obituary Project was developed in April 2000.  Newspapers have given permission to archive published obituaries to help researchers. RootsWeb has provided free access to the USGenWeb Archives since 1996, and like our volunteers, is dedicated to free online genealogy.


Minnesota Marriage Project- This project will endeavor to provide actual transcriptions of Marriage Applications, and other Marriage Records, as found recorded in the county court house and state archives. We are encouraging these transcriptions to be entire marriage books and/or rolls of microfilm.


Genealogy Libraries on the WWW  Genealogy friendly libraries from the US and Europe.



 Ancient Faces.  The largest visual genealogy exchange on the Internet.  Founded in September 2000, Ancient Faces has become the largest visual genealogy presence on the Internet by providing a free location for the exchange of photos. Thousands of photos are being scanned and then added to Ancient Faces by their owners so that others researching their family trees can place faces with the names of ancestors. AncientFaces wants to help bring faces to the names of our ancestors by adding photos to genealogy. We provide an exchange where the owners of old photos can share them for free so that people researching their family trees can see their ancestors All photos that are added to Ancient Faces are collected in a main database that is always accessible to everyone. Sharing photos online allows faces and places to be remembered by everyone and not just the owners of the original photos.  AncientFaces is not just a place to share family, military, and unidentified photos. People come to Ancient Faces to add a more personal touch to genealogy. People add stories and recipes that have been passed down through their families to ensure the preservation of these treasures for generations to come.


Obituary Lookup Volunteers- State/Country Index The Obituary Lookup Volunteers for the United States are grouped by state. On each state's web page, the volunteers are listed by county. For the rest of the world, the volunteers are grouped by country or continent, and on each web page the volunteers are listed by region.


Books We Own  A list of resources owned or accessed by individuals who are willing to look up genealogical information for others. This is a FREE service, but volunteers may ask for reimbursement of copies or postage. There are over 1500 volunteers. Please read the "helpful tips" and other information on this site before requesting a lookup.


Dating old Photographs - Many of us have photographs that are undated, but this site will show you how a photograph can be dated with a considerable degree of precision.
