I have compiled a list of a few genealogy sites on the web that I consider to be among the best available. Some are subscription sites, others are public domain. All, however, offer some great material, and are worth checking out.

Subscription site that offers access to Census Records worldwide, as well as Land Records, Birth, Death, and Marriage Records and more. They also have a wonderful World Family Tree that has millions of gedcom files uploaded by private family researchers. A great place to look for other researchers that share your interests. Check out their surname message boards as well!

A similar site to Ancestry, although as it is a non subscription site, it does not have the multitude of records found at There are also surname message boards located here.

FamilySearch Internet Genealogy Service

LDS searchable database with millions of entries worldwide.

Cyndi's List of Genealogy Sites on the Internet

The BEST compilation of genealogical information on the web. Lists include everything from Census sites, to Cemetery sites. If you can't find the information you are looking for on this site, it probably isn't on the internet!!

The USGenWeb Project - Homepage

Searchable database (Nationwide or Statewide) that offers transcribed records for various counties and surnames. Many wonderful documents available to search. This site is available ONLY because of the countless volunteers who offer their time and energy to transcribe historical documents. If you have any documents in your posession to offer, please consider doing so! Every bit of information helps!
