Sites I have found useful, presented in no particular order The links open in new windows/tabs.
  • Devon History Society
  • Devon Family History Society
  • Beaford Old Archive - pictures from north Devon including people from Beaford, Merton, Dolton, and St. Giles in the Wood among others.  Many of them date to between 1880 and 1930.
  • Devon Heritage - all kind of interesting things here.  Burial records, pictures, stories, and information about towns in Devon.
  • GENUKI Devon - no list of links would be complete without the UK and Ireland Genealogy pages for Devon.
  • Canadiana - A collection of texts, sounds and images related strictly to Canada.  A site with considerable potential once they get exact searches going on both parts of the site.  See the blog for more comments.
  • Canada Gazette - the official publication of the Canadian government.  Approximately 95% of the editions are searchable from 1841 to 1998.  Use the Search links on the left side of the page.  See the blog for more comments.
  • The Internet Archive - lots of out of copyright works in various formats.  Includes city directories, biographical collections, county and city histories, etc.  See the blog for more comments.
  • FamilySearch.org - A redesigned site with lots of new stuff.  The biggest change I have seen is the addition of images of original documents.  See the blog for comments.
  • Peel's Prairie Provinces - lots of material for Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta.  Includes newspapers, city directories, and photos.
  • Exeter Bereavement Services, from the Exeter City Council, includes an index of burial cards of three cemeteries in Exeter - Exwick, Higher, and Topsham.  Burial records date back approximately 150 years.
