Some great places to start researching genealogy records are in genealogical and historical societies. There are many national ones that span multiple states, and each state has them. Each society has collections and records available that will aid in your research. Some are accessible for non-members and even more are accessible for those who have purchased a membership. Below are some national, lineage, and ethnic societies on the first page and the societies for each state on subsequent pages. These societies, plus local genealogical and historical societies have an abundance of online resources for members and non-members alike and some have great libraries.
