I have become very fond of the NEHGS resources, which are particularly good for New England, but are not limited to New England. And while they are best known for The Great Migration and colonial New England, their resources include specialized databases for research on Jewish heritage, African American ancestors, records from the Catholic Archdiocese of Boston, and more. And since this is a nonprofit organization (with staff who actually respond when I submit questions or concerns about databases), it feels much better to send money to NEHGS than to certain other subscription resources.
