This site popped up on Pinterest the other day: GenDisasters
Here is the heading paragraph:
Were your ancestors in a tornado? Was grandpa
killed working on the railroad? Did your grandmother talk about the
great flood? Then, GenDisasters is for you. While we hope
that your ancestors never endured the hardships and sufferings from
fires, explosions, floods, mine accidents and other disasters, we're
here to help you find the ancestors that did. From fires to floods,
train wrecks to tornadoes, we're chronicling every wreck, every
accident, every drowning, every storm - every event that touched our ancestors lives.
You can check by state or year or disaster. It's very cool!
(How many times can a blogger write disaster in a post about disaster? It's a disaster!)
