For a genealogist, professional or amateur, the Internet is a lifeline to research. Two sites that provide valuable services are FamilySearch and History Book Corner.
FamilySearch, www.familysearch.org, provides free genealogy software to discover, preserve and share family history. Capabilities include editing and deleting incorrect data, collaborating with researchers working on the same family lines and submitting citations. You can receive update alerts and link to online photos and documents. For more information, go to https://familysearch.org.
History Book Corner, www.historybookcorner.com, features rare genealogy and history books that community members can read online or download to their computer. Users may browse the local history area by state and the family genealogy area by surname to view the title, author, publisher, year of publication for each available book.
In order to read or download books, users must register as a community member by submitting a name and email address. Members also have the option to contribute a one-time fee of $49.95 to help maintain the website.
