Tuesday's Tip -- Check Our Ancestry.com's FREE State Research Guides

This week's Tuesday's Tip is to:  Check out the FREE State Research Guides provided by Ancestry.com.

The free state research guides are listed here.

There are 43 State Research Guides on the list above, and Iowa was just released.

As an example, here are some screen shots from the Pennsylvania State Research Guide:

a)  The top of the guide includes a history narrative:

b)  Further down the guide, specific record groups are discussed, with links to Ancestry.com databases for those record groups:

c)  Further down the report, other state resources are listed (although I don't see links for FamilySearch record collections and Research Wiki):

d)  Lastly, the Significant Dates (through 1940) are listed:

The Pennsylvania FREE State Research Guide is 7 pages.  It can be printed, downloaded to your computer as a PDF file, or saved in EverNote or a similar program.
