Genealogy Today's StateGenSites

A useful site for organized genealogical links is the StateGenSites on the Genealogy Today Website. The listing is organized by State with many helpful links for each state. In my home state of Arizona for example, clicking on the state name gives me a listing of Arizona vital records, historical societies, cemeteries, census records, obituaries, adoption support and other links. Some of the links take you to other Websites, but there are helpful links to primary source records such as the Arizona Department of Health Services which has online Birth and Death Certificates.

To quote the Website:
Genealogy Today is pleased to announce that it is the new home of the StateGenSites database of over 20,000 genealogy web sites. Launched on October 7, 1999 by Michelle Rich and Bill Hocutt, the SGS database started as an in-depth study of Alabama (by Bill) and Pennsylvania (by Michelle). It has since become one of the most popular directories for U.S. genealogy, categorizing links by state within 27 categories.

  1. Thank you for posting this. I clicked on the Arizona Birth and Death Certificates link and input a name in a family branch I knew had lived there and got a hit!
