These are some of the genealogy links which I’ve accumulated over years of research.
One tool I’ve found surprisingly useful is Google’s book search. I suggest typing in the name of your ancestor, or the town + genealogy, and see what comes up. I found several ancestors that had previously stumped me. I also found a treasure trove of old documents from the New England area. For example, check out this Charter of the colony of Connecticut 1662, and this 1799 business directory of Hartford, CT.
And this Revolutionary War chart may help you ferret out your ancestors.
