Two more great genealogy sites you should check out (for more recommendations, see the full list of this year’s 101 Best Web Sites):
- GeneTree combines social networking and genetic genealogy. You can make profiles for yourself and your ancestors, keep track of DNA test results and search for matches. Use the site free even if you didn’t take advantage of GeneTree’s testing services, which include both mitochondrial- and (as of this week) Y-DNA tests.
- Search the USGS Geographic Names Information System for towns (even those no longer in existence), landmarks, waterways, cemeteries and more in this database of more than 2 million places. You can map any result using a variety of online tools.
