March 14 - explore a state archive or library web site

March 14 – Pick an ancestral state and explore its state archives or library Web site. Search for family and county histories in the online catalog and look for research tips, records databases and indexes.

I always recommend visiting the website of any archive or library that you wish to visit. Find out ahead of time the hours they are open, the resources they have and any other information that might be useful for your visit. Also, check out where you can grab lunch or supper that is nearby. Use Google Earth/Maps and view the area for interesting things and get a feel for the area.
