The other day I was browsing for new internet genealogy site, and google brought up a variety of sites, The one that caught my eye was Genabloggers, so I thought, well lets give it a try.

By typing in Internet Genealogy Sites on their search area, oh yes there is a search feature, how great is that! , it brought up no less than ten pages of sites.Here you have the expertise of the top genealogy researchers and blog authors all in one place.

The first place went to Kimberly Powell who writes for and offers excellent advise. The site is 101 Ways to Research Your Family Tree for Free. Those who know me know how I love the word Free, so do not pass this one up.

Scanning though all the pages I noticed the top authors listed there was
Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter, blog.

Dear Myrtle's Genealogy Blog,

Cyndi's List of Genealogy Sites on the Internet,

The Genealogy Insider written by Diane Haddad - is a treasure, here you will find a site that will give you invaluable information regarding genealogy browsers, did not know there were browsers just for genealogy? well give this a link a look and diane will explain them to you.

While scanning though the sites I hit on one with a curious name it was called Relavtively Curious about Genealogy, so being curious, I said lets take a look, Glad I did it has a toolbar
that lists Free genealogy sites, Pay genealogy sites, RSS feeds, Blogs, plus many good, articles on the home page.

My Heritage has a site that it lists thier picks for the top 100 genealogy site , the sites are listed in alpha order and they focuson finding hiddin gems so give these a look, I am sure they have found many that may have flown under the radar.

There is also a link The Free Services of FamilySearch Internet Genealogy that explains how to use the FamilySearch site to find information on your ancestors that they may have in their databases i like this blog because it features questions ad answers that many of us may have had but did not know who to ask. Viola a free course of FamilySearch!
This is also thanks to the great authors

Many of the sites listed on this site are specific to particular research, for example German ancestry, Jewish ancestry, Polish ancestry, there is even a blog on LegacyFamilytree news so if you are a Legacy fan there is great information on this site

For a good read I suggest you give a look at Hearts and Bones there are great articles on this site and it also has a RSS feed to say current with new postings

Last but certainly not least, one last site that will give you hours, and I mean hours of genealogy information is the Genealogy Gems Podcasts here they archive previous podcasts and links to them.
