FREE Resource List: Transportation Records for Genealogical Research
This week Free Download Friday focuses on transportation records for use in genealogical research . . . since today is the 193rd anniversary of the opening the Erie Canal on October 26th, 1825!
I’ve created a curated list (meaning that it isn’t comprehensive) of online sites related to transportation and how our ancestors used various modes of transportation. You’ll find valuable information on passenger lists, migration routes, and even employee records!
To access this useful 4-page resource list entitled RESOURCE LIST: Transportation Records for Genealogical Research click below or click HERE and make sure you share it with your fellow genealogists and family historians!
Why is this FREE? What’s the Catch?
There really isn’t a catch. I give away a lot of free content every year because I want fellow genealogists and family historians to have access to the best tools and information for their research. I also do this because I’m hoping you might be interested in my other content and websites where I do make money such as Genealogy Bargains:
Even if you never use one of my links for a purchase, I’m happy knowing that you are able to get educational content that you can put into action for your family history research!

- Case Study: Combining DNA and Non-DNA Evidence: This case study shows the importance of combining DNA and non-DNA evidence to solve an unexpected genealogy mystery. With an extensive tree in hand, it might seem that DNA would only help fill in gaps and breakdown brick walls. However, DNA helped in “pruning” an entire branch of the client’s tree and uncovered a mystery. DNA (along with census records, family stories, and even a pony!) and helped reconstruct the pruned branch.
