Bloggers’ Genealogy Toolboxes 2020

It’s that time again – time to take a look at genealogists’ research toolboxes on bloggers’ websites.

As has been my custom, I’ve updated the 2020 list from past years and have only included those websites with new content published within the last few months. Some previous sites are still found online, but have gone dormant.

There are also may first timers on the list, but this list includes professional (business) bloggers in addition to the non-professionals.

Please take the time to visit each of these blogs and take a look at their toolboxes. Resources such as blank forms, reference books, free websites, local resources and DNA are just a few of the link categories. Be sure to leave the blogger a comment, too – we love reading comments.
