Google Scholar Search

Search historical society papers, journal articles and college thesis for your ancestor. If you have a politician or somewhat famous person for an ancestor, search to see if an article has been written about him.

Google Patent Search

Search US patents issued from 1776 to the present. Patents were not just issued to inventors and researchers, but also to factory workers, farmers, miners and many other regular people. Search to see if your ancestors had any patents issued. Our ancestors were very inventive.
