LINK: Resources for many countries
« on: Saturday 31 January 09 17:21 GMT (UK) »
On the Immigrants Resources board I wrote a topic on the FamilySearch Wiki site, which is provides information about many different countries.

Topic: New resource from Familysearch
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,259450.0.html

Although not every page has been "filled" - the project is still on-going - the general style can be seen on many pages already.

As an example, this is the list of Topics on the Germany page:
# Archives and Libraries
# Biographies
# Cemeteries
# Census
# Church Directories
# Church History
# Church Records
# Civil Registration
# Court Records
# Directories
# Dwellings
# Emigration and Immigration
# Gazetteers
# Genealogy
# Heraldry
# Historical Geography
# History
# Jewish Records
# Land and Property
# Language and Languages
# Maps
# Military Records
# Names Personal
# Naturalization and Citizenship
# Newspapers
# Nobility
# Obituaries
# Occupations
# Periodicals
# Population
# Probate Records
# Schools
# Societies

See the topic above for more details.

Different countries, different coverage, but definitely worth a look, and, because it is still growing, it is a site that is worth re-checking (once a month, perhaps ?) to see what has been added for your "favourite" countries.
