Brendan Swemmer I'm without supercomputer for a while. While it can get repetitive and we know discussion search is not great, it's really fun for me - and I hope others - to see members sharing their discoveries here.

I would love if the links in this thread end up in the different national Coffee Corner-projects in Geni.

That's a great idea, Lars. Maybe someone can link the Projects?

The Coffee Corner junk projects?
No thank you.

There's a bit of deja vu in the last few discussion posts - see my comment at http://www.geni.com/discussions/105001?msg=769778 and the comments below it from Erica and Lars.

I do think we need a place to organise these resources in a project or Wiki page(s).

A project on Geni research resources would complement the project I created for Geni research volunteers at http://www.geni.com/projects/Geni-research-volunteers.

There are also country portals such as http://www.geni.com/projects/Australian-Portal and http://www.geni.com/projects/Portaal-voor-Nederlandstaligen and http://www.geni.com/projects/Geni-Israel where resources that are country-specific can also be cross-referenced and included.

Just today I received a private message from another Geni user with links to some great Australian and NZ resources.

He or I could list them here where they will be difficult to spot once they roll off current page. I would also like to list them on the Australian portal and the Notable NZ project, and an overall Geni research resources project.

Erica - you lost me there. A discussion to discuss what?

Sorry! A discussion thread (or threads) within the research volunteers project where people can post the on line resources they find. Then perhaps some can help categorize them better. It might be easier for people to not have to figure out so much who / what project is appropriate ...

Ordering by region should be useful (like it is done on http://www.geni.com/projects/Portaal-voor-Nederlandstaligen ?)

2/15/2012 at 4:16 PM

David,

Sorry, I see you made that suggestion already. I should have read more posts.

Job - you don't have to apologise for agreeing with me. :-)

Categorizing genealogy links is exactly what Cindi's List already does:

http://www.cyndislist.com/categories/

Its list of 300,000 links will always be just a bit larger than the one we have been discussing in this thread:)

There is also a specialized genealogy search engine for those who don't know:

You can now search @familysearch.org "Family History Books" a collection of more than 40,000 digitized genealogy and family history publications from the archives of some of the most important family history libraries in the world. These include books at the Family History Library and the Allen County Public Library.

National Library of Australia site: I've picked up a lot of births deaths and marriages from this one:

http://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/result?q

Lots of info in the PRO:

www.pro.gov.uk

By the way, folks, the Gale Group features among it's databases, access to full text searchable newspapers covering the period from 1600 - today, including The Times Digital Archive. These are licenced resources but can usually be accessed online of you have a library card for a library that has bought a licence:

Sharon Doubell "Jewish Women's Archive" (JWA) chronicles the rich history of American Jewish women. http://www.geni.com/discussions/80238

Super site, Sharon, thanks so much!

Thank you Malka Mysels for thinking to put it here.

It's their research on Jewish Women that I've been finding so useful for the Herodian era: http://jwa.org/research/

It's surprisingly difficult to find research work on these women, and some of these articles are the best summaries to be found anywhere on the net.

If anyone is interested, I have a 101 page listing of the genealogies available thru Higginson Books.

7/23/2012 at 5:09 PM

I perused this thread and didn't find this website mentioned. http://www.britroyals.com If it has been mentioned, please accept my apologies for the repeat!

7/25/2012 at 4:22 AM

Carifying my last entry...I have a hard-copy booklet of all the Genealogies that are for sale at Higginson Books. It is 101 pages long so if anyone is interested I can look it up and tell you the pertainent info and the way to contact Higginson Books.

The start of a new medieval website, designed to aggregate the information already available by linking to it.

https://sites.google.com/site/genicentral/home

I don't know who is creating it. Maybe Will Johnson, whose announcement I saw at soc.genealogy.medieval.

The choice of site name is a bit unfortunate, at least from Geni's standpoint, but the idea is very cool. If the author continues, he'll have a hit.
