One-Step Webpages by Stephen P. Morse

Stephen P. Morse has managed to create one of the most important genealogy websites in the world without mentioning a single one of my ancestors. What One-Step Webpages does is make the information on other websites more accessible by offering new "front ends" for those sites. The Ellis Island interface is most famous, but you can also search passenger lists from other American ports, U.S. and Canadian censuses, vital records and naturalization records. Scroll down the page to find several One-Step pages for Hebrew and Russian resources. Note that some databases require an Ancestry.com or Genealogy.com membership to search.
