N E H G S Poll I Read About

Well, seems Randy found a new poll from NEHGS. IF I received it, it went to old email address.

It talks of what are your top websites in preference of use.

These are the sites:


o http://www.ancestry.com/

o http://www.familysearch.org/

o http://www.newenglandancestors.org/

o http://www.rootsweb.com/

o http://www.usgenweb.org/

o http://www.footnote.com/

o http://www.worldvitalrecords.com/

o http://www.google.com/



My preferences would be:

o http://www.google.com/

o http://www.usgenweb.org/

o http://www.rootsweb.com/

o http://www.ancestry.com/

o http://www.familysearch.org/

o http://www.worldvitalrecords.com/

o http://www.footnote.com/

o http://www.newenglandancestors.org/


But this would depend on what region I was researching.
If New England region then NEHGS would be first. If we were doing Mid Atlantic or Southern regions I would be doing state libraries and genealogical and historical societies first.

If I was unsure of where, I probably use google.com the most. When in doubt I google, ASK JEEVES, and use other sources.
World Cat is good for finding where to look also.

I would also add to this list: FindaGrave.com, deadfred.com, worldgenweb.org, (I use this often).

Many years ago Cindy's List would have been one but it is so huge it confuses me now. The state historical socities and libraries are so much better today than 10 years ago please do not miss the information that is there.
