101 Best Genealogy Websites for 2012

By David A. Fryxell Premium

 As you know from the way an afternoon slips away when you’re doing genealogy research, time really does fly when you’re having fun. So too it is with our annual 101 Best Websites compilation: It’s hard to believe this is our 13th such list. Fortunately, we’re not triskaidekaphobic—we embrace this compilation as a “lucky 13th.” In fact, to celebrate, we’ve come up with 13 categories for this year’s list.
Our “lucky 13” lineup includes both free and paid websites. As usual, we’ve indicated with a $ symbol those that require payment to access the core content or to access the features we’ve highlighted in our description of the site. In most cases, websites that are free except for paid premium services don’t carry the $ sign. We think this listing of stellar sites will prove lucky for your genealogy research.
