SDGS Library Catalog Online

We finally have our San Diego Genealogical Society Library catalog online! It was a lot of work on Miriam's and her volunteers part but it is now ready for use. Go to the SDGS web site at and click on the Library link. That takes you to the description page and opens a link to the catalog.

Currently there are 9992 titles available for searching. The database has already sorted 123 categories and 159 locations. The user is also able to do specific searched on all or part of titles, author or call number.

This is an excellent addition to the society and is available to members and non-members alike.

Danish Archives

I just saw a message on the Danish message list at Rootsweb that the Danish Archives no longer requires a log in.

In the past a user had to create an account and log in each time you accessed the site. No More!

The Danish Archives Online,, offers images of the parish record books and national censuses. An excellent resource for research.

Of course it helps to be able to sort of read the old Danish text and script.
