Recently I have started to follow several historical and genealogical society blogs. Most of these blogs have information about local history, upcoming events, and links to other useful websites. What has been most useful is that I don't have to travel to the particular area to garner information about ancestors that have settled in these states. Especially with some being a considerable distance from our home.
