ABOUT THIS LINK LIST
We have included a few sites which fall into the category of GENERAL HELP, but the function of this page is not to list the many sites which have interesting and useful genealogical information. Such listings are extensive and are best found elsewhere. The focus of this list are PERSONAL SITES and others with specific information about 'Corson' families.
We provide these listings for the purpose of assisting searchers and web site owners to make new contacts.
Because this list is being continually
added to and updated the most recent additions are listed in
separate sections so you can check back periodically and see what has
been changed without
checking the complete list.
It would be more beneficial for searchers if the site listings had more amplifying information included. We would appreciate your input on 'reviewing' these sites. The basic information about the site name, it's owner, and the extent and nature of the relationships, of the individuals and families listed, to the various lines could be verified or expanded. Also, comments about the ease of use of the site, accuracy of data, or other observations would be desirable.
