Posted by Diane
Here are details on two more of our 101 Best Web sites (see the rest on FamilyTreeMagazine.com
- Genlias, the enviable Dutch database, is a partnership of public archives in the Netherlands and overseas with nearly 45 million names extracted from some 10.8 million civil register records. (Death records enter the public domain after 50 years, marriage records after 75 years and birth records after 100 years.)
New here are statement of succession records (inheritance declarations used to calculate death duties) dating from 1808. You can get a list of available records by region, too.
- Get a jump on your Civil War research at the National Park Service Civil War Home Page. The war's sesquicentennial commemoration isn’t until 2011 to 2015, but preparations have already begun. Now, you can learn about the war's beginnings in "Bloody Kansas" and link to additional online resources. Also get a timeline, find out about Civil War parks and more.
