Some of my Favorite Individual People's Sites

(Most of these are Pa Dutch too, to varying degrees)

Linnea's Homepage - An excellent page with a lot of good information about Lebanon County especially.

Donna Speer Ristenbatt Genealogy - One of the very best of the PaDutch-related individual sites

Kraig Ruckel's Palatine and Pennsylvania Dutch Genealogy - my sentimental favorite because two years ago, on the very first day, the first few minutes, I tried to get started on my family research on the net, I found this page, and sure enough, there was greatgrandfather Penrose Frank in his Civil War regiment, on this page or someplace I reached from it, I no longer know.  I thought, wrongly, Oh Wow! This going to be a snap.

Tom Yoset's Site - This one on Crawford County, PA

Crawford and Venango Counties, Pennsylvania

Bemont County, Ohio

Belmont County Genweb Site - Much information on Belmont County

Ohio Genealogical Society - Belmont County Chapter


West Riding Yorkshire Surname Interests - Surnames of Western Yorkshire


Perkins List Homepage - The Homepage for the Rootsweb Perkins mailing list.  It has links to many other Perkins-related sites.

German Genealogy 

German Genealogy Site - For those with German ancestors, a good place to start.  It is in both English and German.

General Genealogy Sites

Of course there are a very large number of these but these are the main ones that I in fact use:

The Olive Tree - a very good general site with original information on the Palatines and several other groups, and also a lot of good  old ship passenger lists.

The Ellis Island Site -  Invaluable for those with later immigrants; you can find the ship they came in on and even in most cases, a picture of the ship!

Rootsweb Main Page - A vast site that has everything but what has been expecially important to me is their mailing lists.  Without their mailing lists I would not be where I am.

Ancestry - Another huge and well-known genealogy site, with a large amount of 'hard data'..  It is a membership site but I personally find it worth every penny, and even if you don't, a lot of things are free.

Genforum - The best bulletin boards to quickly find others researching your family.

FamilySearch - The LDS church site, lots of valuable data although not the easiest to use.



This page is not finished but I thihk I have most of the most important ones on it. I hope to add more later.  If you have a website you would like me to add, please let me know.
