Bloggers’ Research Toolboxes – 2018

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:

  1. Thanks for some excellent links to check out! Although I’ve clicked on some of these sites in the past, others are new. This is also a good reminder to check back periodically, since the links are updated, I’m sure.

  2. I don’t call mine a Toolbox, but I have a section on my blog called Resources which is a summary of the websites and other resources I have used while researching my family
