Blogger Genealogy Research Toolboxes: 2024 Edition

It’s time for my yearly edition of Genealogy Research Toolboxes found on bloggers’ websites. As always, there are a few new websites and I’ve removed past links to sites that have gone dormant.

Bloggers who have chosen to add research toolboxes have spent a lot of time to compile helpful links for researchers. Be sure to leave a comment letting them know how helpful those websites are.

  1. Thank you for the mention! Besides links on ABT UNK for research in Chicago, I have links for Lithuania; Houston, Corpus Christi, and Granbury, Texas; and Portland, Oregon; as well as some general links for interpreting naturalizations, passenger lists, and Sanborn maps.

  2. Thank you for creating this wonderful list, Linda, and for including my blog in your list. It’s a sad fact that when I visit a blog, I don’t usually stop to look around. I’ll have to start doing that, especially at the blogs that focus on the countries of my ancestors and other topics topics I research for my ancestors.
