50 Most Popular Genealogy Websites for 2011
Have you checked out the most popular genealogy websites?
Some of these I use regularly. Many others I do not. Some don't seem that interesting to me (e.g. directories of websites), but I will be checking out some of them. Pay sites are clearly indicated, which makes it easy to avoid them if you want.
The ranking was compiled by Kory Meyerink of ProGenealogists. (Kory used to do a podcast that really enjoyed.) I have to wonder how some sites that provide very little data or just one kind of data (e.g. http://www.findagrave.com/ ) rate so highly, while others such as http://http//www.freebmd.org.uk/ didn't make the list.

Check the list yourself at:
