New Website Today! - World War I Draft Card Resgistrations On-line FREE!

Steve Gorney at and I have finished the new website and will be launching it today (I hope). I think you will agree that he did a superb job of formatting my old site to the new design. The man is incredible! If you ever need someone to hold you by the hand and walk you through this wild wild world called the Internet, he’s your guy. JOOMLA! (VERY Good!)

We will have much of the old material in a newer sleeker presentation, and we have added tons of new features and data. You will now be able to subscribe to my RSS feeds (at no charge of course) and you will get any news flashes that I think might be helpful to NYS researchers.

At the top there will be a “SEARCH” box for my whole website, then a row of buttons for:

Home – Daily Blog – Favorite Genealogy Links – FAQs – Contact Us – Site Map

Then along the left hand side there will be buttons for:


Basic Genealogy

Civil War Research in NY

Internet Genealogy

Internet Security

Land Records

Mayflower Connection

NY Counties & Census

Old Cambridge District

Researchers Gathering

Book Reviews

My Genealogies

RSS Feeds:

RSS 1.0

RSS 2.0

If you don’t know about RSS feeds yet, stay tuned, I’m going to write an easy to understand description on what they are and how to use them.

I think you will really like the new design and I hope that we will be able to bring you new and exciting items to help you discover those pesky elusive ancestors!

Please let me have some feedback on the new design and if you have thoughts on additions, corrections or if you find any glitches, burps, humps in the road, or BUGS, then PLEASE do let me know ASAP.

(Oh, and by the way, I just LOVE my new logo!)

Keep trying the site at until you see the new design.
