Genealogy Links & Useful URLs

My thanks for the websites and dedicated webmasters providing
genealogy resources on the 'net.
I have found the following sites incredibly helpful.

Date this page was last checked for cobwebs and dead links:
Sunday, 06-Jan-2008 15:50:02 MST

I have been storing lots of these links for a long time awaiting that day when I could create a webpage for them. Hark! The day of the webpage has arrived! If you are a BUCE/BUSE/BUICE researcher and find you often use this site for referral, send me your favorite research links and I'll add them to this page. And if you find any dead links, I'd appreciate a quick note with the URL.

DateCalculator (MacOS Classic and Windows) shareware
Need to figure the date of birth for the ancestor who died in 1853 at age 33y 4m 21d? What about the age of your ancestor during the census year? Not only does it add and subtract
dates, but it gives you the day of the week -- really helpful for the newspaper obits that say she died on Tuesday and was buried on Wednesday. It calculates dates in Julian, Hebrew, and French Republic as well as the modern standard, Gregorian calendar. It's available for PC (Windows) and Macintosh computers.
