Follow Friday - Week of April 13

Here are a few of my favorite finds for this week:
  • The Every Name Index site has a growing list of county histories indexed to include even minor mentions of an individual or surname in the history. There are indexes available for county histories in several states as well as other links and resources.
  • The Hamilton County Probate Court has archived records available to browse online from as early as 1791! Records include birth, death, naturalization, and many others.
  • Family Tree Magazine has a nice set of free Cheat Sheets listing the records available for different time periods. The Cheat Sheets are grouped by naturalization, brick walls, war service, vital records by US state, and 1880 supplemental census records available for each state.
  • Leaves for Trees has an excellent post on finding open source historical photographs.
Follow Friday is an ongoing series at GeneaBloggers and was suggested by Earline Bradt of Ancestral Notes.
