The Minnesota Historical Society has launched an online Minnesota Veterans Grave Registration Index with information on more than 72,000 veterans' burials.
The information comes from US Veterans Affairs Dept reports compiled between 1930 and 1969. Veterans who died during those years account for most of the data, but the compilation includes a handful of listings as early as the War of 1812 and as late as 1975.
You can search on your relative's last name (including a Soundex option) or on his year of death, county of burial and conflict he served in. Results show the veteran's full name, death date, county of burial, and the war(s) in which he or she served.
The original report may have even more information: date and place of the veteran's birth, enlistment, discharge, death and burial....plus his address, serial number, rank, unit and next of kin. After obtaining your search results, you can click on "Add to Order" to request a copy for $8.
The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) has redesigned their Web site. The redesign came about due to comments they had received from researchers.
The old web site contained tons of useful information, but it was difficult to navigate. The new home page features three columns of links. On the left are those that tell you about NARA. The center of the page contains changing content such as news. On the right, you choose the links based on who you are (General Public, Genealogist, Educator, Journalist). Below those are links to databases and tools such as Archival Research Catalog, Access to Archival Databases,
eVetRecs, and how to order records on-line.
The main genealogy page links you to online finding aids and research overviews. There are also links to FAQ's, guides to resources, microfilmed records, and pages about record groups such as census, military and immigration.
GOOD DEAL FOR SCOTLANDS PEOPLE
Last month, the Scottish family records Web site
Scotland's People (http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk) teamed up with the
National Archives of Scotland
(http://www.scottishdocuments.com) and the Court of
the Lord Lyon (http://www.lyon-court.com) to add millions of records to what's
already available on Scotlands People. (The Court of Lord Lyon, Scotland's
heraldic authority, maintains the Scottish Public Registers of Arms and
Scotlands People is the genealogy data site of the General Records Office for
Scotland. The site, which currently contains nearly 40 million records and has
215,000 registered users, will get the Scottish archives' historical wills and
testaments, as well as armorial and genealogical material from the Court of Lord
Lyon. It's scheduled for launch in spring 2005 as a new, rebranded site.
The three organizations also are collaborating on a Scottish Family History
research facility near the General Register House and the New Register House
buildings in Edinburgh. It's slated to open by the end of 2006.

Update: West Virginia Vital Records Online Database
Researchers no longer have to register to use the database. The birth records are up now for all six of the counties currently entered. Statewide death records are available for all 55 counties from 1917 thru 1954. Additional records will be added each year as records pass the 50-year mark. County death records dating from 1853, or the inception of each county, whichever date is later, are included as each county is entered into the database. Marriage records are also available for several counties. West Virginia researchers may want to check back periodically for future additions to the database.
Here's just four of the many interesting topics the web site includes:
A Brief History of the Civilian Conservation Corps
The CCC Museum and Research Center in St. Louis, Missouri
How To Acquire CCC Records
