New Modules on LearnWebSkills Genealogy Tutorial site

I received an email from Debbie Duay, PhD, the Florida State DAR Chairperson who created and updates the www.LearnWebSkills.com website. I use the website in my Genealogy 101 Workshop and my Beginning Computer Genealogy classes because they are extremely useful in bringing genealogists without al ot of computer experience up-to-speed through demonstration and practice.

I thought you might be interested in a couple of book "collections" that I have put together as part of my "Researching Your Revolutionary War Patriot Ancestor" tutorial at http://www.learnwebskills.com/patriot

First, county and town histories that include biographies of citizens can be extremely valuable in documenting family history. Using Google Books, Internet Archive, and BYU Family History Archive, I have organized several thousand links to free county and town histories at:

Next, I have organized links to thousands of free vital records and probate records (check out the links for Massachusetts vital records) at:

Finally, with the 4th of July approaching, some of your readers might be interested in my links to free sources of Revolutionary War service at:


Thank you, Debbie, for the very helpful email.

Readers - go check out the links to county and town histories, and the state vital record links. Debbie has made it very easy to find many online books and vital records.

I hope that she will add the county and town histories and vital records to the main learning modules at www.learnwebskills.com under the appropriate topics.
