How To Use Online Resources
Online research is getting easier every day. The Internet has made it possible for researchers world wide to share their documents, resource and reference information, and other types of recorded material.
Some good place to start your research include:
Email Discussion Groups
If you are new to genealogy or new to Internet genealogy, there are two email discussion groups especially for you: GEN-NEWBIE and NewGen.
For instructions on how to subsribe and participate in these groups, see the RootsWeb Mailing List website.
Join the SOMGEN email discussion group for Somerset Co., PA.
Check out the list of genealogical email discussion groups maintained by John Fuller.
Join the Somerset County PA Genealogy Facebook Group. This is an excelent FB group for sharing Somerset County genealogy. It's a "closed" group, so after you click the [+Join Group] button, you'll need to wait for an admin to accept your request.
This county is part of the USGenWeb Project, a non-profit genealogical resource web system, and is maintained by April Phillips and Connie Burkett with help and information provided by other volunteers.
