GenealogyBank.com Adds Early Birmingham Age-Herald newspaper

I have mentioned GenealogyBank.com in the past on this blog. Newspapers are in my top (3) of favorite sources of family history information (the 1st two being vital records and census data).

I was ecstatic Sunday evening when quite by chance I discovered that they had added turn of the 20th century issues of the Birmingham Age-Herald to the site. Previously they had the Labor Advocate (Birmingham) and Montgomery Advertiser for this time frame. The Montgomery Advertiser is quite useful because they carry news from all over the State of Alabama.

You can view all of the newspapers they have available here. Check back often as they add new resources every month.

GenealogyBank.com is a subscription site, but one even I on my limited genealogy budget feel is well worth it – if just for the obituary database (1977-current). Currently they are offering a 30 day trial for $9.95.

NARA adds Immigration Records to Online Databases

Thanks to Dick Eastman for mentioning this on his blog.

NARA has added indexes to some pre-1900 passenger lists to its database online. The search is not very user friendly… names and ship information require different searches. So you have to locate the person first and then go to the ship search to get the full details.

You will find the passenger list indexes here. Be sure to read the description of each one.
