Some Good Web Resources

Here are a few web sites I've found particularly useful for Ashley county historical information and genealogy research. Each of these links will take you to an external site.

Ashley County Ledger The Ashley County Ledger newspaper has a wealth of materials of interest. See the Obituaries link from their home page to access an extensive listing of cemeteries with headstone inscriptions. Full text obituaries are available since 1999, with an obituary name index going back to 1965. Finally, the Ashley County History link will lead you to a lot of great articles. Some search capability for the obituaries is provided by this site.
Bureau of Land Management The Bureau of Land Management's General Land Office provides a searchable database of land patents. Images of original documents are retrievable.
RootsWeb Ashley Co. Message Board Make searches and post queries for Ashley County.
USGENWEB Ashley County The official USGENWEB Ashley County web site. Follow the "Surnames and Researchers" link and add your names of interest.
