Family Tree's 101 Best Genealogy Web Resources for 2011
Family Tree magazine just recently released its annual list of 101 best online genealogy resources. Usually this list consists of only free sites but this year's honorees includes both free and paid subscriptions.
Similar to last year, the list is divided into different categories, including the always popular "Canadian Cousins" and "Crossing the Pond" as well as the intriguing "Tech Tools" (note: hmm...must try out Mocavo, a genealogy-specific search engine).
While some of the websites mentioned on the list are annual repeats (e.g. Canadian Genealogy Centre), I occasionally a find a new site that I have never heard of (e.g. Newberry Library Atlas of Historical County Boundaries and Genlias) but might come in handy later on down the road when a patron comes to the PHR reference desk for assistance. Enjoy!
