My Genealogy Links

This is simply a list of genealogy links I found to be useful. I used to keep these as bookmarks or favorites, but kept losing them to hard drives crashing or new computers that did not transfer files as well as I hoped, so now they are here. I considered creating this in Pinterest, I had some concern about their, “fine print” concerning the linking photos and possible copy write violations. I stayed with this, “old school” list to prevent that issue.
