Tuesday's Tip - Check Out Randy's Genealogy Links

This week's Tuesday's Tip is:  Check out my Randy's Genealogy Links (http://www.geneamusings.com/p/randys-genealogy-links.html) on the Genea-Musings blog.  

Yep, right up there at the top of Genea-Musings are links to several "Pages" for static articles.

It's right next to the "Home" link just below the red banner area.

Like many online genealogy researchers, I've been collecting my favorites, or bookmarks, links for years, and decided to create a page for the "best of the best."  They follow my research interests to some extent.

The original intent was to be able to find specific sites or topics with one click while in Genea-Musings rather than have to search through hundreds of bookmarks in my browser.

I have sections for:

*  Beginning Genealogy Tutorials
*  Online Data Portals
*  Vital Records Online
*  United States Census Records
*  United States Military Records

*  United States Immigration and Naturalization Records
*  Cemetery Records
*  Historical Newspapers
*  Surname and Locality Books
*  Message Boards and Mailing Lists

*  Historical Record Collections - United States
*  Maps
*  Online Family Trees
*  Canadian Genealogy

I know that I haven't gathered "every" great genealogy website here, so I'd like to ask my readers to make suggestions for specific sites for specific topics, and even for new topics.  I may have just overlooked a site, or misjudged a site's value.  I would love to have a UK/Ireland topic, for instance.
