A very valuable resource has started offering some of its older material for free. collects scholarly journals in collections for libraries, schools etc. Now they are making US journals pre-1920 and other journals pre-1850 available without belonging to a supporting institution.

Here's the links for the announcement and a video for how to take advantage of the free service.

Are you researching Cornwall?

This is a beautiful website about Cornwall families from late 1600's to 1800's. Birth records were not kept but baptismal records were. The author arrange the site around the principal churches. If a family switches churches, she links you to that page. Many beautiful photographs of rural Cornwall and centuries-old churches.

Working on your Scotch-Irish ancestry? I am, and found this:

Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlement in Virginia: Extracted from the Original Court Records of Augusta County, 1745-1800 [Hardcover] 3 volumes, $199.00

This monumental work consists of court records pertaining to the Scotch-Irish pioneers who first breached the mountain barrier sealing off the Atlantic seaboard from the country west of the Blue Ridge. In 1738, when Augusta County, Virginia was erected, its domain extended from the Alleghenies to the Mississippi River, and from the northern part of Tennessee to the Great Lakes. Consequently Chalkley's esteemed publication stands as the supreme source of genealogical information for hundreds of thousands who trace their ancestry to Augusta County, and the Great Valley of Virginia.

But ... Here we go ...

I did check it out. Perhaps you'd like to send me a private message explaining what's wrong with that site? If I agree, I'll delete the post.

I get a message that the site does not exist.
It could be a DNS error somewhere

12/3/2011 at 1:44 PM

I've had no problems with it, Bjorn. I clicked on it the first time just a few minutes after Maria posted it, and several times since then.

As I said: I checked the domain on several domain look-up-services that should not be affected by local problems.

We don't know that Bjørn, if owner have decided to move after renewal this can happen, but I'm sure this site will work for you in 1 day or so.
Anyway, I'm deleting all my post now, so this thread can stay on topic

I just tried the website Bjorn says above is a problem - I can't connect to it either.

12/6/2011 at 2:16 PM

There is something about this site that some people cannot connect to with the link here or with the link a search on the Internet brings up.

I was not able to connect either way, 'Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage'.

Maybe something about IE or Security/Firewall/Virus is stopping it?

I"m on Chrome and I have zero trouble opening the link. I am baffled, because it is a great resource. It covers genealogy for Kent, Sussex and Surrey, and follows those families to the New World, especially to Canada. It has wonderful pictures of the people profiled and the towns where they lived. There is a simple tree for each family.

When MEZ first posted the link I couldn't connect, either. However, the next day there was no problem. I use Firefox.

Great site, Maria, thanks!

The write up about it looked like it would be a good site and IE could show a bump out image for each section which had a link, but I could not connect to any.
I should load up Chrome, I've thought about it before, maybe then Google will straighten up and stop it's jerky scrolling.
