I’ve finally been able to catch up (somewhat!) on genealogy blogs since I’ve been gone.  Imagine my surprise and delight to see that my post Traditions was given a nod by Randy Seaver in his Best of Genea-Blogs July 13-19, 2008! Thank you, Randy! And thanks to everyone who clicked on my post from Randy’s site! Please let me know if you read my post on “Traditions”. Jasia, at Creative Gene left a comment that she had thought about using that Theme for a future Carnival of Genealogy. What do you think? I think it’s a great idea!

Thanks to Randy Seavers’ Genea-Musings Blog, I found out that the current “Everton’s Genealogical Helper” Online Edition is FREE for download (this month only!). You can go to Everton Publisher’s Genealogy Blog for the link. 

While I was scanning the online edition, I came across a link (yes, the links within the online edition actually link to a website) for Jackson County, Missouri records.  If you go to  https://records.co.jackson.mo.us/localization/menu.asp    and click the “Acknowledge Disclaimer” link at the bottom and proceed.  You can look up Marriage Records, Official Public Records and Uniform Commercial Codes.  I found the Power of Attorney of my great-great-aunt’s grandson and marriage records for more of the Given family that I am trying to locate. 

Since that gave me a little taste of gleaming information from public records, I thought I’d do some Googling to see what else was out there.  Unfortunately, my time is short right now so I didn’t find a lot of sites, but I did find a site called Your Missouri Courts which looks as if it encompasses all counties in Missouri and the courts therein.  I located some wills and divorce information.

Hope those sites help someone!

State Agency Databases website has a listing of all 50 states plus the District of Columbia. If you click on any of the states, it will take you to the page of Databases for that state. Example: from the Kansas link, I scrolled through the list until I came upon listings under the Kansas State Historical Society. One of them was for Death Notices of Members of Fraternal Orders. There I found a death date I had been looking for. Some of the states have court case searches or land records searchs. This website probably won’t have everything you want to search for, but it is another place to look for information.

I told you I’d give you tips on finding little known websites offering genealogy information!  Harold at http://midwesternmicrohistory.blogspot.com offers Midwestern Genealogy tips and sources.  Today his post is about Digitized Newspapers in Champaign County, Illinois.  If you are researching in that area, please go take a look at Harold’s post.

Once again, I thank all of you who are reading this blog – especially those who leave comments and leave a link to your genealogy site or blog.
