GENERAL LISTS OF LINKS
Cyndi's Illinois Genealogy
Cyndi Howell has probably the most comprehensive list of genealogy links on the
Internet, updated almost every day.
Treasure Maps 'How To'
Treasure Maps is one of the "hidden" genealogy sites on the net..it should be tops on
your list of places to visit. This is not a surname list as such, but is a HOW TO site, with great instructional
tutorials (many with beautiful color photos) focusing on the actual mechanics of genealogical research. Currently
online is an extremely well done piece on making tombstone rubbings. Instructions for all tutorials here are simple
and easy to follow. A must see site-bookmark it!!
SURNAME and GEDCOM RESOURCES
Probably the best "GEDCOM" submittal site of all. This one has a little thing called
"Smart Matching" which will compare your submittal to others and provide you with a list of matching individuals in
a "side by side" comparison. The site also has message boards, the ability to "block" the living folks data as you
upload, automatic listing of your submitted names with "GENDEX" and a lot more. Your gedcom is NOT for resale here,
and is laid out nicely in website form.
World Connect Project
Another Rootsweb production...similar to GenCircles except without the "Smart
Matching"...tons of submittals and no fret of them selling your data.
Although some data on this site is "pay for view", it does offer various ways of
gaining free access to that data so you can quickly check for your family.
