Please add (and sort) links here - it will be much easier to find them when we need them :-)
One of the pioneer counties of Illinois has an excellent genealogy website. Midwestern migrations often went across Illinois as new lands opened westward.
We talked about a military project, they have a link for that.

Lynne BTW I'm going to open a "House of Douglas and Angus" Project shortly. I do hope you join us as a collaborator. I need to find out more about my treasonous witch, Janet Douglas; Archibald "Bell the Cat" Boyd; and other colorful characters of these related families.
If you have a chance to start a discussion to collect resources for us? I'm downloading Cockagne's "Peerage of Scotland ...." from archivestream, for instance. Gotten a little lost between volumes 3 and 6 I'm afraid.

In case anyone isn't aware, the church in Ireland has put their records online. It's a wealth of information. Many people, including my great grandmother, were born at home, so the only record of birth comes from the church.
The National Archives is also a great place for records, like census records
Has anyone seen this site?
The author's mission statement -- "This is a single part of what will be, by my classification, about 240 compact tribal histories (contact to 1900). It is limited to the lower 48 states of the U.S. but also includes those First Nations from Canada and Mexico that had important roles (Huron, Micmac, Assiniboine, etc.).
"This history's content and style are representative. The normal process at this point is to circulate an almost finished product among a peer group for comment and criticism. At the end of this History you will find links to those Nations referred to in the History of the Wampanoag."
BTW, I used the **NEW** discussion search feature to find this particular discussion. AWESOMENESS, indeed. Got it on the first try!

Great list of Ireland resources
Here's a group in NYC. I've found numerous dates for my husband's family (who are not Italian) but live in NYC. They can probably tell you about other resources. Mary

Interesting old books with only pictures and signatures of British nobility
Haven't looked extensively but this seems pretty good:
We started building this site about 12 years ago mainly around our own family tree interests, namely UK genealogy, but especially the West Country (Devon, Dorset, Somerset, Cornwall, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire). If this is not your cup-of-tea then please do not be put off yet as we are sure there will be something of interest to everyone with regard to their English, Scottish, Welsh and Irish ancestry - if not then please tell us!. We have information for most counties online, and if not it will be coming soon...
