These are Cobb’s favorite sites for historical research as well as her comments about the sites:
Ancestry.com was a huge help when I first started my genealogy journey. The census records, birth and death certificates, and marriage records were a must-have when researching my family tree.
Fold3 is still super useful to me in my line of research. If you want to work with Veterans Affairs to obtain a new grave marker, it’s crucial to have a Fold3 account. For a small monthly fee, users have access to an array of military records ranging from the Revolutionary War to
Family Search is a good research tool for users who are unable/unwilling to pay the Ancestry.com fee. It doesn’t have as many records, but the few they do have are useful.
Find A Grave has helped me as I try to locate my ancestors’ burial sites. With many individuals’ burial sites uploaded, with some occasional family photo “goodies,” I find a free Find A Grave account to be a valuable research tool.
Kentucky Kinfolk has information, such as marriage records, death records, and occasionally military records, for numerous Kentucky counties.
