Thanks to all who shared these with us. You know the old story about not being able to see the forest for the trees, right? Well this is a way that you can inform researchers of sites that they might not locate on their own.

Keep them coming folks. Just add your favorite NYS site to the comments just below this posting.

Tomorrow I will write a review of one of the July submissions.

I'm thrilled to have my Jefferson County, NY, Pioneer Portraits website featured this month, thank you! I noticed that the URL is missing a portion and that teh link is therefore taking users to the general county site, rather than tot he portraits site. Could you please update the link from http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ny/county/jefferson/ to this http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ny/county/jefferson/ppp/ -- thank you! -- Mark Wentling

Hi Dick,

Thought I'd update you and your readers with the news that the Jefferson County, NY, Pioneer Portraits Project, at http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ny/county/jefferson/ppp/ which you featured in July, just added it's 1,000th photo of a pre-1865 settler!

That's a milestone seven years in the making, made possible by donations from visitors to the site.

Very exciting..... on to 2,000!
