Day 19 – Check Out Linkpendium
I’m excited, as always, to discover a new site – a “newbie” to me!
Today Amy recommends trying linkpendium.com – which offers over 10 million links “to everything on the Web about families worldwide and genealogical information on U. S. states and counties. Well this surely will keep me busy – guess there will be no cooking in the kitchen today!
While many of the linked resources are paid sites, many are free. Amy mentions that their search engine is called “Family Discoveries” and searches more than 2 million sites. Wow! Sounds exactly like a Google just for genealogy – Thanks Amy!!!
So my mission today, should I decide to accept – is to check out Linkpendium!
While being on vacation – my searches and writings are becoming harder and harder every day…. but I still keep trying. I took a whirl around the site with my limited Internet, but nothing immediately popped up for me. I laughed when I found registered voters in Ct. on Insalaco Drive…. although I knew about the road…. as I’ve taken a photo of the sign with my son standing next to it…. it was funny to find registered voters listed as living on it.
One of my main searches, that I constantly look for is… when and where my Joseph Thomas Sharp (1835-1910?) died… and buried. He last lived with his son in Augusta, Georgia… as listed on the 1910 census. The 1920 census found him no longer in their household, so I’m assuming he died. But it’s not the first time I assumed he died, as he previously lived with his daughter Rosie (Sharp) McKinley in Hancock Co., Georgia, as listed on the 1900 census. If you have any suggestions – I’m open to them!!!
