Columbia Co. NYGenWeb - no search engine
Greene Co. #2 - Search Engine
Greene Co. NYGenWeb - Search Engine This is a hybrid site; partly genealogical records and largely NY
genealogical and historical books for sale. The search engine looks through book indexes sold by the
sponsor, plus synopses of the books, plus the records on the site. The records that I saw were alphabetical
by surname. To do a search for Craig Winne, you will likely have better results by searching for
Winne, Craig . Or, just search for the surname.

SEARCH ENGINES FOR OTHER SITES
RootsWeb Search Engines A powerful site consisting of many search engines. GREAT.
Google Search Engine (google) Outstanding for genealogy. Searches 2.6 billion webpages in less than 1
second. Enter a surname followed by the word genealogy or family and you may be surprised at the
result. Enter any given name and surname between quotation marks. Repeat this with names reversed.
Social Security Death Index (1935-present) (RootsWeb) Better than next.
Social Security Death Index (Ancestry.com) Use previous.
USGenWeb Archives Search Engine - National Search (USGenWeb)
Burial Records (579,134 records in 2,108 cemeteries) - Search Engine (Cemetery Records Online)
WebWide Surname Locator (cribbswh)
Burial Records (2.5 million) - Search Engine (Find A Grave)
Palatines plus other German immigrants (Palatines to America) Incomplete database. Data not verified.
Genealogy Portal (Genealogy Portal) Searches many web sources.
Bureau Of Land Management (US Dept. of Interior) Search for ancestors who went west from NY.
Latter-Day Saints Website (LDS) A wonderful contribution to genealogical research as long as you
understand that much of the data was submitted by people doing their own family trees, and that LDS
cannot check such data for accuracy. What you often get is another person's opinion, and that should not
be accepted by you until you have been able to confirm the information in a more reliable source. The
LDS site is an excellent starting place for clues, but not for final answers.
Gendex -- WWW Genealogical Index - Search Engine (Gendex)
WorldConnect at RootsWeb (RootsWeb) Searches for names in submitted gedcoms.
Making of America - at Cornell University (Cornell University) Has many complete books which were
published 1815-1926. A new feature allows you to choose to convert the graphic page images to text in
some of the books. The search engine will search only through the converted books. Be aware that many
mistakes have unavoidably resulted from the conversion process. As a result, many names that are
present in the book have been misspelled in ways you could never guess (with numbers or symbols rather
than letters). Nevertheless, the books are far more useable than before this feature was added.
