Tuesday's Tip: Explore Thomas MacEntee's "Genealogy Research Toolbox"

This week's Tuesday's Tip is:  Explore Thomas MacEntee's "Genealogy Research Toolbox" at  http://genealogytoolbox.weebly.com/.


Thomas MacEntee has been a leader in the online genealogy world, and, over the years, has put together a "Genealogy Research Toolbox" as a way to easily find genealogical research resources.  He mentions this Toolbox in many of his presentations and webinars.

There are pages for:

*  Home (the screen above)
*  General Research
*  Other Research Toolboxes
*  Books and Libraries 
*  Calculators and Tools
*  Cemeteries and Death Records
*  Census
*  City Directories
*  Genealogical Societies
*  Illinois
*  Land Records
*  Living People
*  Maps
*  New York
*  Newspapers
*  Photos
*  Search Engines
*  Vital Records
*  Volunteer Projects

Here is a screen shot of the "Calculators and Tools" page:

Go explore!  Maybe there are some new online genealogy resources highlighted in this set of links that can help you with your research.

Websites like this can be a great help to online genealogy researchers, especially beginners, as suggestions for research and education.

Other genealogy educators and curators have something similar - for instance, my "Randy's Genealogy Links" is at http://www.geneamusings.com/p/randys-genealogy-links.html.  It reflects my own research interests and experience.

Thanks for the shout out Randy! Now I see that I have to add some new links in certain sections . . . .

Nice example - how can you link to the presentation though? I use a different method to achieve the same purpose with Google Chrome Bookmarks. With Chrome you can create folders that appear in the toolbar of the browser and place other folders and bookmarks inside of the parent folders. The nice thing about this approach is you can easily reorganize and add new bookmarks, and you can access your bookmarks from multiple devices; laptop, ipad, iphone, desktop, work computer, etc.
