Feel page is UScentric as stands - many US only links. Geneanet, My Heritage seem more international. Also LostCousins is UK/Ireland/Canada/US.

Would add Mocavo as a genealogy search engine. Also Generous Genealogists and Mocavo for RAOGK lookups as well as adding mention of the Family History Library catalog and free lookups for specific requests.

Is there a team looking after this page? Otherwise I will edit as above.


May I strongly recommend that social networking sites totally dedicated family history purposes be listed here as well. Two or three British ones come to mind and of which are especially helpful:
