=== Introduction ===
This article contains references to a list of suggested compiled sources. The term "compiled sources" refers to collections of user submitted family records, usually in the form of family trees but also including surname books, extracted records and other sources. These user submitted records may or may not be verified or contain original source references for the information submitted or collected. Collectively, these websites and other publications represent family history 'silos' containing billions of ancestral names with some already compiled data. The searches in these sources should supplement, but not replace, your genealogical researching in original record sources.
Regardless of your experience as a family history researcher in using primary and original records, and no matter how many years of experience in researching family trees, it is best not to forget that compiled sources may help you more comprehensively search for data already submitted
and compiled on your family lines. Family history seekers are guaranteed a pleasant surprise as they strike ‘gold’ by discovering already completed research on at least one or some in-common ancestral family lineages. However, be careful not to accept any records for which there is not adequate documentation from original (rather than compiled) sources.
It is also helpful to realize that additional information concerning your family lines may appear online at any time. It is a good idea to review this type of source from time to time to see if there have been any additions.
:Some of the following sources have compiled family tree information. Others contain digitized copies of surname books and other extracted records. On the other hand, some the links include sites with original source records and have been included because
of the compiled records.
