SURNAME REGISTRIES YOU CAN JOIN
One of the best features of the Internet is the vast number of people who can access your surname, IF you make that access available to them :) Here are a number of databases available for registering, as well as for searching:



The Surname Web
Searchable registry which also includes
sites dedicated to specific surnames.

MISCELLANEOUS RESOURCES

  • Switchboard - Great tool for locating addresses/phone numbers of individuals or businesses/churches/institutions throughout the United States. Database is updated 3 to 4 times a year, utilizing listings from telephone books nationwide.
  • Geographic Nameserver - Not sure what county your ancestor lived in? Type in the town and state, and server provides the county name. Excellent resource.
  • Gene Stark's GED to HTML Translator  Program converts genealogy files, such as Family Tree Maker, to HTML page ready. I have only experimented with a few small files but have been very impressed. I am looking forward to completing a master file for the site, and using GED2HTML.
  • RootsWeb Mailing Lists - RootsWeb hosts over 3,600 user mail lists. List topics range from regional (i.e. country, state, county, and even some cities) to ethnic and general genealogy. There is bound to be something of interest to just about anybody. In fact, the next entry is one of the RootsWeb mail lists....
  • MISSING LINKS: A Weekly Newsletter for Genealogists - A compilation of links, personal research stories and other genealogical material available to any one who has an e-mail address. To sign up for MISSING LINKS, e-mail your request to Julie_Case@prodigy.com.
  • Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter - A weekly newsletter by Dick Eastman which covers a range of topics, in particular sifting through what is available to online researchers. Part of Compuserve's Genealogy Forum and it's World Wide Web extensionRootsComputing.
  • Bookcraftsman - Don and Joan Morrill are custom bookcrafters, specializing in family bibles. Bookcraftsman did a great job restoring the bible of my great great grandmother, Sophia Kaylor Keehne. Published in 1850 the book had fallen into disrepair, its spine gone, covers off, pages torn - it is wonderful to hold the bible now, fully restored and intact, as my ancestors once held it.
