Genealogy Reference Links

Other Genealogy Links
This is not a comprehensive list of all genealogy sites on the internet, but over 80 sites are listed. The sites are listed alphabetically by the site name, not address.

Links do Change
Most sites have only the top-level/entry page listed, not the many sub-sites. These sites have all been verified as of July 2014, but there is no guarantee that the site address will not change, or the site disappear completely.

No Guarantees
There is also no guarantee that the information available at any site is either accurate or complete, and genealogists should take care to verify any information obtained by consulting additional/multiple sources.

Before You Pay
Many of these sites supply free information, but not all of them do. Read the information carefully before deciding if you want to pay or not. Happy ancestor-hunting!
