Online Articles/Posts

Print Articles

  • “Traugott Bromme and the State of Illinois,” by Richard L. Bland, Illinois State Genealogical Society Quarterly, Fall 2012.

Websites & Resources

  • JSTOR – Resource for academic articles. Some earlier journals are accessible for free. For others, you will need to log in through a subscribing library. The nice thing is, you can conduct your searches at home to see if there are any articles of interest, before you head to the library.  Thanks to Josh for explaining why and how to use this. 
  • Books We Own – "Books We Own is a list of resources owned/accessed by individuals who are willing to look up genealogical information and e-mail or snail mail it to others who request it. This is a free service - volunteers may ask for reimbursement of copies and postage if information is provided via snail-mail."  Don’t know how I missed this all these years!

The Cousin Bait post was by Amy Coffin...please correct, then delete this comment.

Thanks for catching that. I've fixed it.

Jacqi Stevens said...

Great list, as always...but I headed to the comments to note that that great cousin bait post was written by Amy Coffin. I see Randy Seaver beat me to the punch...but I'll still add my two cents worth that Amy's column was informative!

Amy Coffin, MLIS said...

Thanks for the mention, Julie. I appreciate it!

You're welcome, Amy. Although admittedly at first I had the wrong name...chalk it up to "one of those days!"
