Hard to find but free places where you can research genealogy on line, without having to pay. Your comments and feedback are welcome to any post. If you find dead links, please let me know so I can update or remove links that are no longer valid.

About me: Jerry E. Reed
First and foremost, I am a seasoned voice talent and media/public relations specialist with many other interests. I have been helping businesses with their narrations, presentations, commercials, and more all of my adult life.

I am also a genealogist, a
n avid photographer, and artisan bread baker.
My genealogy interest began before personal computers were a family "must have." Personal genealogy computer research has blossomed in the past 15 years. It wasn't long before someone decided that they could charge for information that should be free and in the public domain. I have always been frustrated by that. Now, thousands and thousands of pages of useful facts are coming on line daily in free-to-access digital archives located all over the world. So, I'm constantly searching for new sources of free on line material. Blog updates follow this section and all links are added to the master list below the new posts.
Updates are posted when
I discover another new source or when something I have already reviewed gets a major update.
Have fun and enjoy.
Note: if you find a link no longer works, please let me know so I can research and update it.

Update: Lewis County NY Newspapers

The North Country Library System, based in Watertown New York, serves the north western counties of the state. One of my first entries on this blog was about the Old Newspapers the group has available on line. Several new titles have been added since October. These appear under the Lewis County link. Now, in addition to old issues of the Lowville Journal and Republican 1860-1940, you can search the following titles:
Black River Democrat, 1913-1943
Lewis County Banner, 1856-1859
Lewis County Democrat, 1867-1906
Lowville Herald & Lewis County Democrat, 1910-1914
Lowville Leader, 1943-1953
Lowville Leader and Lyons-Leyden Ledger, 1953-1954
Lowville Times, 1876-1884
Lowville Times & Lewis County Independent, 1884-1891

Here's the direct link to the Lewis County section:
