Description of Major Categories

The What's New Page (this page) keeps you up-to-date on the recent changes to the Houston County, MN GenWeb page.  As improvements in the content occurs, they will be highlighted here.  This page is expected to be updated about once each month.

The Townships Page contains a history of the township, along with reference information for specific churches, cemeteries, libraries, etc. which are found in the township.

The Boards Page is renamed to Query Boards Page and it contains links to each of the USGenWeb boards for queries, pensions, wills, deeds, bibles, etc.  The boards allow you to queries other genealogists for additional information about your families as well as posting information you have found in your research to share with others.  I have found that sharing information I have is an effective way of connecting with other researchers.  Please take a minute to post one item (obituary, deed source, etc) to the boards every time you visit.  The more robust this information gets, the more valuable this site will be.

The Lookups Page is still being developed, but this will contain a list of individuals who are willing to do limited look-ups for other researchers.  Please let me know what types of information you would prefer to be included here.

The Valuable Links  Page contains three categories on on-line information related to Houston County.  The first group represents the common heritage found in Houston County, the second represents on-line research links, and the third contains a list of published Houston family genealogy and history information on the internet.

The Source contains a list of locations in Houston County which house source documents useful for genealogy research.  In addition, a sub-page provides a listing of documents found to be very useful including Census listings, Birth & Death records, etc.
