CA, IRE, NC, NY, and VA New Pages and Updates

Here are some of the latest new pages and updates. In all the busy-ness of the site maintenance over the past four months, it's possible that I didn't make note of other new pages I created or updates I made. Since I made changes on every single page (over 700!) as part of the maintenance, it would be a time-consuming task to go through my site management pages to double check!

I encourage you to see if there is new information on a page you're familiar with, or a new page for one of your ancestral or research locations. Happy Hunting!

CA, MO, and WA New Pages and Updates

I finally added all the rest of  links (18 more) to directories from Ancestry to the Orange County, California page.  I also added 21 free links to county and telephone directories from the Fullerton Public Library. It took me a loooong time to get this page completed because Ancestry divided up the directories for this county into three parts and I had to check each part to see which communities it contained so I could label the links correctly. I now have only 10 more California counties' directories at Ancestry to link!

I also added a link from the Hathi Trust Digital Library to the King County, Washington page.

I created the Boone County, Missouri page and added a link to it from the Hathi Trust Digital Library. This now makes five counties, plus the City of St. Louis, linked for Missouri.

Glamorgonshire, Wales - with one link from the Historical Directories site (not to be confused with my site, the Online Historical Directories website!)

---

Finally, a bit of news: if you have an Ancestry subscription or use the Ancestry Library Edition, you'll discover that they've made it easier to browse their directories database (as well as use their many other databases) by state, then city or county, and finally by year using a drop down menu on the right. For more information, read this post from their blog.
