 Notable Women Ancestors  An excellent site established to tell the stories of women ancestors who are notable for their accomplishments in particular fields or for the examples they set as individuals. I include this site here particularly because Elizabeth Hooton, a Strawbridge ancestor, has her own page at this site under "Religious Leaders."

 Strawbridge Family E-mail Group  Follow this link to join an e-mail group concentrating on Strawbridge genealogy.  This is an excellent commercial site that lets you search for, and purchase, used and out-of-print books. I have found several excellent books of family history through this and similar sites. Try searching for your family name as part of a book title and see what turns up.
 Library of Congress American Memory Search  This site lets you enter search terms to locate full-text documents in the Library of Congress's growing collection of on-line items. For example, if you enter the search terms "Gilpin Washington," you will discover numerous letters between George Washington and one of the Gilpins. There also are some letters between Thomas Jefferson and a Gilpin. There undoubtedly are other items of interest to various Strawbridge relatives.
