The Internet, it’s a start: But so much remains to be indexed much less scanned and digitized. Free sites and portals (Google & Cyndi's List for links by topics)

Webpages by Stephen P. Morse: indexes, and finding aids to various vitals, arrival & naturalization and other records; also the best search engine for navigating the Ellis Island Arrival database. Social Security Death Index. But, ultimately someone’s got to get down and dirty searching hardcopy.

To find the living (or recently living) Probate, voter registrations, internet directories

On-line catalogues NYPL, FHL, CJH etc.

Interlibrary loan
