NEW RECORDS ON FINDMYPAST.COM

Click on the picture below to get information on new records that findmypast.com has added this last week.  Findmypast sends out a notice of added records each Friday and I will be posting the information on this blog.

Happy ancestor hunting.

FINDMYPAST.COM ONLINE GENEALOGY RESEARCH WEBSITE


Fellow family historians that know me well, know that I am always looking for a way to save money on my online genealogy research.  Yesterday, I posted a blog about free access through today to the records on the online genealogy research website FindMyPast.com.  I have just signed on to their "Starter Package" for $34.95 for one year.  The normal price for a year of Findmypast is $119 which is what the price will go to when renewing the subscription after your starter year.  I am going to give it a try for a year and then make a decision on renewing my subscription.  I will keep you updated on this blog with reviews of my genealogy/family history research on this site.

On a side note - the reason that I am interested in this site is that it is the only site that has a record collection of all of the issues of the Ruston Leader and Ruston Daily Leader in the early and mid 1900's.  These are the years that I grew up just north of Ruston in Unionville and I have found many articles that I use for references in my research and writing.  They have one of the best United States newspaper collections available so you might want to give it a try for this price.  It is a very user friendly site and it is easy to clip and copy the articles to your computer.  When doing so, do not forget to record the newspaper name, issue date, and page along with the record so you will be able to find it again if you need to.

OKLAHOMA BIRTH AND DEATH INDEXES ONLINE

For all fellow family history researchers that have Oklahoma ancestors, Dick Eastman posted some good new for you today on his website Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter.

 Oklahoma Birth and Death Record Indexes are now Online
oklahoma_deathOk2Explore is a free searchable index of births and deaths that occurred in the state of Oklahoma. Included is limited information on births occurring more than 20 years ago and deaths occurring more than 5 years ago. Visitors to the site may search the index using any combination of the subject’s name, date of event (birth or death), county of event, and sex of the subject.

The web site is available to everyone free of charge. However, keep in mind the site contains INDEXES, not all the information from these records. Once you have determined that a record of interest is on file, you are welcome to apply for a certified copy of that file. The certified copies cost money but do include all available information from the original records.
You can access the new Oklahoma State Vital Records Index at https://ok2explore.health.ok.gov.

Happy ancestor hunting.
My thanks to newsletter reader Vicki Prough for telling me about his new online resource.
