Genealogy Tidbits to Share

Some months back I wrote about a site replacing the Random Acts of Kindness Site we lost due to a death.
If you go to this site I am sure you will be pleased with the results that you get.

Generous Genealogists

We also talked about translations, and a site I have used for quite some time was brought up.

Google Translate

In verifying this applications site I see they have it for mobile devices now also.

Maryland information

Abstracts of Maryland Wills - Liber 23 1743

Whilbr - Western Maryland Historical Library

Mid Maryland Roots

Do not forget all the USGENWEB sites

Here is one that will link to others if you try.

Washington County, Maryland USGenWeb - Land of the Free Genealogy and Family History - Copyright 1996-2010 FamilyHart

Remember when doing Maryland research that some lands are in YORK CO. PA area of old, because they squabbled over the border line up to near Berks Co. of old and  Pa claimed down into Maryland quite a distance.  If you look there are maps to guide you and Dr. Hively has done some extensive work on the deeds for these regions. Adams Co. also was involved.

Dr. Hively did a great presentation on this situation with his maps and books.

Another site with a twist on your history.  We all have them.
