Gena's "40 Places to Find Vital Record Information"

Gena Philibert Ortega is the editor of the weekly WorldVitalRecords Newsletter, which often has excellent general interest articles.

Gena wrote a two-part article ( Part 1 last week and Part 2 this week) about 40 places to find vital record information online. The reason? She said:

"It then occurred to me that genealogy is everywhere, however sometimes we get in ruts and don't enlarge our scope of thinking about places to search for that piece of evidence that would point to the date of our ancestor's birth, marriage or death."

The list of 40 places has many of the expected online resources, but has some surprises too. I printed it out and will put it in my reference notebook.

Check out Gena's two articles:

* Resources 1 to 20 in Volume 4, Issue 27

* Resources 21 through 40 in Volume 4, Issue 28.
