Brian Converse at AncestryCorner has a number of excellent lists, some of which are included here. He has given permission for our use, so long as we leave on his "signature" at the end of the lists. Check back there to see what is new. Brian is doing a great service to genealogists with his lists -- a great "thank you". (Note: Aug 2001 - AncestryCorner seems to have disappeared. If anyone has any information on its location, please let me know.)
