Link To Us
Histopolis.com encourages and appreciates links from relevant genealogy and history web sites, blogs and other online sources. This page provides information and guidance to help you create your links.
Why Link to Histopolis?
Histopolis.com contains links to a variety of genealogy and history sites containing information about specific places (cemeteries, cities, counties, ...). Each site that we link to for a specific place, a cemetery for example, contains only part of the overall information available for that place. If your site contains information on that cemetery, you can help your visitors find other relevant information on that cemetery and other nearby cemeteries by including a link to Histopolis on your cemetery page.
