It has a great relationship chart, wanted posters, what things cost in 1830, genealogy terms explained, epidemics, a great page on how to clean a headstone (the results are amazing!) and more.

Local Resources:

Mainly Berwick I think, from what I have seen so far - but she has lots of family obits scanned in too.  Looks like it hasn't been updated in awhile, but still a great collection.
