New Release of Online State Resources


Michael Hait, CG has just released version 3 of his eBook, “Online State Resources for Genealogy”. Michael writes, “This new edition verifies and updates all of the links from the previous editions, and adds almost 200 new repositories, for a total of over 600 repositories/agencies and over 9000 links. It has come a long way since the first edition!”

Personally, I am very excited about this new edition. I have used this resource many times since he released his first version. Recently I realized I have been visiting state archives and resources almost as much as I have Ancestry and FamilySearch. It is exciting to see the importance the state archives are placing on uploading so many of these great resources to their website.

In his preface Michael writes, “Many researchers are unaware of the sheer volume and variety of records that have been brought online, at no cost, by government agencies and others active in individual towns, counties, and states. This book will provide a directory to sites that offer record images and indexes nationwide, including
  • state and county archives;
  • state libraries;
  • state health departments;
  • county clerks, recorders, probate courts, etc;
  • historical societies;
  • genealogical societies;
  • university libraries;
  • public libraries;
  • and others."

To show you an example of what these resources have, I picked a state at random – Ohio. Then, I looked around and viewed Hamilton County. Here is just one example of what this book might provide you for the county you are researching in: Categories of Online Archived Records
  • Estates - 1791 – 1984
  • Wills - 1791 – 1973
  • Trusts - 1791 – 1984
  • Guardianships - 1791 – 1984
  • Marriages - 1808 – 1983
  • Minister's License - 1963 – 1975
  • Birth Records - 1863 – 1908
  • Birth Registrations and Corrections - 1941 – 1994
  • Death Records - 1881 – 1908
  • Naturalizations - 1856 – 1906
  • Probate Court Journal Entries - 1791 – 1837
  • Physician Certificate - 1919 – 1987

Michael would also like to announce the debut of a companion blog, also entitled "Online State Resources for Genealogy". This blog will explore one or two individual resources from the book each week. Here are a couple of most recent posts: Agriculture Census Information (Pennsylvania) and Ages of U.S. Volunteer Soldiery (1866).

More about Michael Hait - he is a member of the Board for Certification of Genealogists, Association of Professional Genealogists, International Society of Family History Writers and Editors, Genealogical Speakers Guild, Council for the Advancement of Forensic Genealogy, National Genealogical Society, Maryland Genealogical Society and many others.

Disclosure – Michael Hait, CG sent me a copy of this great resource to give an honest review. I feel this is something every genealogist would benefit from. He has taken the time to locate online state resources that can help us in our family history. He offers it to us in an Ebook or PDF format that is affordable and beneficial to anyone who does research.
