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.

New Tecumseth Digital History Site - Ontario, Canada

Here's a small but useful site for those that might have a connection to Tecumseth County in the province of Ontario, Canada.  While concentrating on local history, this site has a genealogy section, too.  The material here focuses on four main settlements: Aliston, Beeton, Tecumseth and Tottenham. In the genealogy section there are three collections of data:
Tombstone Inscriptions St. Paul's Cemetery This one has tombstone inscriptions for all persons buried in St. Paul the Apostle R.C. Cemetery up to and including 1990.
Simcoe County Militia: Rebellion of 1837 - Muster Rolls and Pay Lists of the Volunteers which served in the Simcoe County Militia during The Rebellion of 1837.
Alliston Funeral Register 1885-1908 -This material is from the registers kept from 1885-1908
