Genealogical Databases of a Different Type

With the recent release of Michael Hait's Ebook, “Online State Resources for Genealogy Review”, I have started making a point of looking at genealogical databases of a different type, other than the ones I have usually gone to – Ancestry and FamilySearch. I have had some wonderful success. Here are some examples of documents I found when searching these often unused databases:
We also need to realize that only a very small portion of what is available to researchers is online. We still need to visit the archives, cemeteries, courthouses, libraries, genealogical societies, museums, churches and other places where genealogical data may be. It is important to remember to get those interviews from family and friends before it is too late.

There is something that we must remember. All the records and documents that we see on Ancestry and FamilySearch were all found in these courts, libraries, churches, cemeteries, etc. These websites have not been able to access every record that ever existed. So, it is very important for us to visit these places and see what is there. We may discover that document that has not been scanned and put on Ancestry or FamilySearch.
