Links to Online Genealogy Records for Each State

familysearch-wiki

I love the FamilySearch Research Wiki for many reasons.  One of them is the page titled “United States Online Genealogy Records.”  This is a page with a link for each state page—pages which have neatly organized links to online genealogy records.  It also has a few other links to pages with general U.S. records as follows:

Arizona Online Genealogy Records
Part of FamilySearch page for Arizona Online Genealogy Records

If you like the idea of an entire page full of links to [insert favorite state name here] all neatly organized into familiar categories like births, marriages, deaths, archives and libraries, biography, cemetery, census, compiled genealogies, directories, history, military, and—well, you get what I’m saying—then you are going to love these state pages.  Just take a look at the full page of Arizona links.  Be sure to also check out the box titled, “Arizona Background” and its links for Biography, Gazetteers, History, Maps, Migration, and “For Further Reading.”

These are not just links to databases on FamilySearch, but links to fee-based websites, as well. The good news is that the fee-based websites appear to be those that patrons of LDS Family History Centers have access to at no charge, like Ancestry.com. The majority of links appear to be free, and are from the FamilySearch digitized collections.

Since the FamilySearch Research Wiki can be edited by anyone, presumably these pages with online links will be updated as new ones become available and alert Wiki contributors add them.
