Top 100 Genealogy Websites Used in 2012

By Dennis L. Maness, MLS 

This is slightly off my usual post, but only slightly because it does involve genealogy. There is a company called Alexa that tracks what kind and amounts of traffic various web sites get. Another blog, GenealogyInTime Magazine; uses it to list the “Top 100 Genealogy Websites” each year. Here is their list for 2013.

Checking it I found that I use only 18 of the 100! Of course some are subscription sites that I can’t afford or are in or about other countries that don’t fit into my genealogy. But there are sites listed that I’ve not tried but just might be helpful in building my family history. I’ve now included some of these places in my New Year’s Resolutions.

How many do you use? And would they be good additions to your New Year’s Resolutions?

Have a Happy Genealogical New Year!
