As genealogists we need diverse websites to serve us. Besides the Fulton County History website already mentioned, we utilize the Tompkins County, NY website http://nytompki.org for much of our research. We love the Past, Present, Future link which shows the newest additions to the site, as well as the cemetery link which gives burials of all the cemeteries in Tompkins County by town. My husband frequently visits the Newfield cemeteries while I am scouring the cemeteries in Ulysses. Another great resource for New York genealogical research is www.APHNYS.org. This is the site for the Association of Public Historians of New York State, and from there you can find a historian in the area in which your ancestor lived.
Linkpendium – www.linkpendium.com hosts information on all states, and when using this site my husband has been heard blurting out, “I Love Michigan!” In Linkpendium he clicks on the state he is searching, and then Statewide Resources, and from there he finds a wealth of information he never expected to find online. Another gem is a paid (but affordable) site, the Godfrey Memorial Library located in Middletown, CT. For such a small building, it houses a large collection, and an even larger online collection. The Godfrey site is www.Godfrey.org, and for $10 you can get a one-day pass to their entire online collection. Our Genealogy Club of Newtown (CT) enjoyed a talk on the resources available at the library. Folders are set up for each state, many countries, city directories, vital records, well, too much to mention here. I do encourage you to check them out for whatever state you are researching. They also have a volunteer, Ed Laput, who is photographing cemetery stones in CT, and wherever he vacations.
