Speaking of the state of Vermont, the Gateway to Vermont website is an excellent resource for anyone with ancestors in that state. The site contains sections for Vermont history, Vermont counties, photographic images, cemeteries listings, business directories, and a variety of other records.
Under Vermont History, you will find links to various topics that include accounts relating to the Battle of Bennington, the building of the Hazen Military Road and much, much more. In Vermont Counties, you will find selections describing the various counties and their respective towns.
Of special interest to genealogists, the Hall of Records includes records of births, marriages, deaths, burials, and transcriptions of pensions and deeds, as well as poorhouse, court, and church records. Many of the vital records have been transcribed from town reports. The poorhouse records have been compiled from the reports of the Overseers of the Poor.
As a former resident of the state, I especially enjoyed the Vermont Lore section of the Web site. If you have French-Canadian ancestors who traveled though Vermont, you will especially want to read the section on "Tracing French-Canadians from Vermont Back to Quebec in the 19th Century."
The Gateway to Vermont Web site is affiliated with the VERMONT-L mailing list on RootsWeb. This mailing list is for the discussion of the Genealogy and History of Vermont. Discussion topics encouraged include migration patterns, immigration, heraldry, historical sketches, settlements, census data, wills, family Bibles, vital records, and web sites.
