101 Best Web Sites 2003
Everyone's a winner with our annual guide to the cream of the crop of genealogy Web sites. Start your online ancestor hunt with these 101 essential digital destinations

Movies have their Oscars; television, the Emmy awards; chemistry, economics, peace, literature and such, the Nobel prizes. For genealogy Web sites, the ultimate annual honor is inclusion in Family Tree Magazine's 101 Best Web Sites. And just as the Oscars, for example, help moviegoers discover noteworthy films they may have overlooked, each year our 101 list leads family historians to the latest and greatest resources on the ever-expanding Internet.

Unlike the movies, of course, Web sites stay on screen for more than just a few months; they're continuing creations. So some extraordinary sites have made our list more than once. This year, our fourth annual 101 list, we're recognizing these consistently click-worthy sites with a Hall of Fame designation, denoting those that have made the list at least three times.
