These Are a Few of My Favorite Sites...
GENERAL
I'm trying to be a little original here, and only put a few of
the standard links you see on other Web Sites. These
are choices you probably don't normally find, but are
good none the less.
Even some links if you are traveling to do your genealogy!

category specific. When you get to the main

There are oodles of choices from there such
as marriage, obituaries, civil war, maps, etc.

HISTORICAL PRESERVATION (and Cemeteries)
I have included cemetery Information here as well. In my opinion, there has not been enough done by our State or Federal
Governments for cemetery preservation. Grants for restoration would be nice!
