It’s time to take a new look at bloggers’ research toolboxes. The great thing is that I keep finding some new sites with lots of links. In the past, I’ve separated out professional sites from non-business blogs, but this year, I am just listing all of them in ABC order. There is no cost to view any of the toolboxes on professional genealogy sites.
A few of the blogging sites don’t have recent blog posts, but there are toolboxes linked. If there is no description of the toolbox, then that site has a wide variety of resources. I’ve noted those that are more specialized/localized.
Take the time to visit a blogger’s website. Besides the family stories, which may or may not relate to your own, you will find an incredible number of resources covering every imaginable facet of genealogy research.
Whether you are a blogger or “just” a genealogist, take some time and create your own toolbox list.
Here is the 2018 list:
DNAeXplained – Genetic Genealogy – the HELP button brings up DNA resources and information
Eastern Washington Genealogical Society – extensive variety of links, not just WA
Empty Branches on the Family Tree – click on the buttons on the home page for many resources
Find Lost Russian & Ukrainian Family – click on home screen buttons
Genealogy à la Carte – lots of Canadian links
Genea-Musings – Randy’s Genealogy Links has a huge list
Granite Genealogy – check out Training Materials
Jennifer’s Genealogy Blog – lots of church links on this site
Kitty Cooper’s Blog – click on the various tabs on the home page for many DNA resources
Olive Tree Genealogy – one of the largest collections of helpful links you will find. Great collection of Ship Passenger Lists
One Rhode Island Family – great Rhode Island list using buttons at the top of the home screen

If you have an online toolbox that I’ve missed, please let me know and I’ll add a link.
