RE: Genealogical Websites
Thank you for this list with quite rightly at the top. Smile
You didn't list Genes Reunited ...?
It's tree-swapping function is incredible and enabled me to not only add 100s of % to my tree but I met some amazing genealogists in the process.

RE: Genealogical Websites
Yes a good list we perhaps should add to it when we come across other sites worth a mention? a word of warning however. The IGI is what is says it is - an index that has been transcribed from records. It is a very good site, but was never originally designed for Genealogists- and like many sites is open to mistranscriptions.
Check the originals where possible at local archives/records offices - if unable to do so make a request for help - someone may be going there and may do the look up for you. It is so easy to make a mistake and end up with inaccurate information,Huh Extracted records are fairly reliable but remember - are open to interpretation what the transcriber sees is what you get. Member submitted records are best taken with a huge pinch of salt. They may be exceptional or they may be total guesswork

Do you find any others of interest?
