Sometimes it is good to have a list handy of sites that can be of use to you. I recommend that as you go to save them in Favourites, that you create a folder called Genealogy Links. That way you can find them again, instead of trolling through all your favourites. I recently did a big clean out of my favourites and now I have only one folder, called Family Tree and in that there are two sub-folders, one called archives etc. and the other called blogs. All my other family tree links are just in the main folder, other stuff is just under favourites.
Here are some sites that I find really useful and what they offer.
Australian War Memorial. I love this site for what it has to offer. You can find and then print the Roll of Honour, with a poppy marked for you veteran.
The Ryerson Index. I use this for finding a death, that is outside the register’s time.
Old Bailey Records. Even if you didn’t have a ‘naughty’ ancestor, this site provides hours of really interesting reading. Trial transcripts, judges comments and sentencing.
Convict Search Data base. Useful for your convict ancestors.
Tasmanian Archives. Good convict information.
Looking at my list of sites, I’m going to make this ongoing, so look for parts 2 through to … If you have a site and would like it included, contact me and I’ll see what I can do. I will check it out first.
Happy Ancestor Hunting,
