Relax! I didn't divorce John. I just answered the phone and didn't look
carefully when I started typing again.

Sitting here between Fort Worth and Dallas, I use GenealogyBank extensively.
It has the Dallas Morning News archive and much of the various Fort Worth
newspapers in the Historic Newspapers Collection. The Obituary Collection is
great for tapping into collateral lines. Major population centers seem to be
covered better than rural areas but never underestimate how far news
travels. I found two news stories about my ancestors in an Illinois
newspapers even though they lived in southwest Missouri, weren't criminals,
and had no known connection in Illinois.

Subject: [APG] What Do You Use?

While I know every website that contains genealogy is always 100% true, it
may or may now help in your research. So I was wondering, besides
Ancestry.com, what websites would you recommend - free or pay? I am quite
familiar with Cyndi's List and Rootsweb, but what else might there be that
is worth paying for? I do have a subscription to Ancestry.
