- Lets start with Documenting the American South, where the University of North CarolinaChapel Hill library publishes digitized texts, images and audio files.
We called this site one of the Best for African-American Researchers because of its strong African-American collections, including information on slavery, biographies and Southern black churches. But it covers a wide range of Southern history topics, including literature, North Carolinians in World War I, and southerners letters and other writings.
- Next up: Family History Online, a fee-based site that lets you search records compiled by family history societies in England, Wales and Australia. The 67 million records now available include parish registers, memorial inscriptions, censuses, poor law documents and more. (See a breakdown by place under the Databases menu.)
Youll need to register with the site to search the name index. You see limited results for free; the cost to view full record entries starts at 5 pounds (that’s about $10).
And you can visit our Forum to nominate your favorite family history site for honors in 2009.
