As promised this week we’ll continue to explore the resources of DIGITALARKAVET. In particular let’s look at the church records available and how to explore them.
Even though I have no Norwegian ancestors (to my knowledge), I’ve been having fun delving into the resources of DIGITALARKAVET in preparation for a research project. This site contains a plethora of key documents for anyone whose roots are from Norway. Those with Norwegian ancestors are likely familiar with this site. For those that aren’t, here are some of the tips I learned as a newbie to this site.
As family historians, we seem to be on an endless quest for information. We are truly blessed up and down the Red River Valley of the Dakotas and Minnesota with quality genealogical resources. One of these resources is the Red River Valley Genealogical Society. Let’s look.
Isn’t it amazing how many genealogy websites exist today? It’s a wonderful gift to be able to search historic records so readily. It is equally challenging to find the time and energy to sift through those sites to find the best. The FamilyTree Magazine publishes the “101 Best Websites” each September. You can find the list in their September issue or go directly to their site. This week I’ve picked out a few of these sites for us to explore.
A recent news article congratulated a local volunteer who’d photographed and documented thousands of graves in her community. Many hours and time were spent capturing this important information. We are fortunate to have such people who share their photos and hard work on grave sites. This week I thought we’d look at some of those sites as well as a site that talks about the best way to conserve gravestone.
