As I am rather a newbie at my research and genealogy in generalI was wonderingwhat some of you felt was some of the better links outside of ancestry.com to do research. In particular places to gowhere one can find and research a particular census rather than doing it page by page as is done on the ancestry.com queries. also some good sites for such things as cats of arms and name history. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks, Hollis McArthur

That depends entirely upon where in the world (and when) your ancestor lived. A good start is FamilySearch.org, though.

FamilySearch.org
cyndislist.com (links to just about any subject)
linkpendium.com (ditto)
www.deathindexes.com (tells what is published online for a particular state) and its companion site, Online Birth and Marriage Indexes for the USA (http://www.germanroots.com/vitalrecords.html) Joe Beine, the creator, lets you know if a site requires a fee, or is free to use.

A good blog to subscribe to is Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter. There is a free version and also a version where you can pay and get "plus edition" articles. Dick Eastman has a great article regarding the myth behind a coat of arms:

Also, don't forget to check your local library. Many times there are online databases of interest.

I'm not sure what you mean by "research a particular census rather than doing it page by page as is done on the ancestry.com queries." Can you please clarify?
