Blog Surfing Research Toolboxes, Part 2 – Professional Sites

Last week, I wrote a post about bloggers’ research toolboxes, which turned out to be a very popular read. In both my original 2015 post and last week’s update, I decided to focus for the most part on bloggers who were not professionals running a genealogically-based business.

However, there are many professional bloggers out there who have great research toolboxes, so I decided to give them their own post. I am sure there are others out there, but here are some of the ones with whom I am familiar. They are in ABC order by blog name, except for Thomas, who has the honor of being first. 🙂

  1. Destination: Austin Family – Thomas MacEntee of GeneaBloggers is probably the best known because he is the one who has encouraged us all to create our own toolboxes. He has also generously shared his own.
  2. Anxiously Engaged – Peggy Lauritzen has a list of helpful links on the left side of the home page.
  3. Evidence Explained – Elizabeth Shown Mills doesn’t label her links as a research toolbox, but for source citation tips, her website is the place to go.
  4. Genealogy by Paula – Paula Stuart-Warren has a long list of favorite research links.
  5. Olive Tree Genealogy – Lorine McGinnis Schulze has a blog along with her website, which is a huge research toolbox for ships’ passenger lists, along with links to many other Canadian and American records.
  6. Relatively Curious – The home page has links to both websites and research.
  7. The Armchair Genealogist – Lynn Palermo’s site has multiple tabs to genealogy writing resources.

If you are aware of other professional sites with research toolbox links, please leave a comment.
