A Few of our Favorite Websites

Keyboard And Mouse With Coffee by Stuart Miles/Courtesy

During the Internet Tools Virtual Meeting last week, instructor Gena Philibert-Ortega posed the question, “what are your  5 favorite genealogy websites?” The only rule was that you couldn’t name a subscription website.

What came out of that meeting was a great list of  websites.

Couldn’t make the virtual meeting? No problem. See the list below and consider creating your own list from these links.
