The Best Genealogy Websites
There are good websites and there are bad websites – and then there are premium websites. You would have trouble researching a family tree online without utilizing the census index resources of www.ancestry.com (or its UK equivalent, www.ancestry.co.uk or the Australian version, www.ancestry.com.au), which for monthly or annual subscription also offers immigration records, newspaper archives, BMD (birth, marriage and death) records, census records and much more.
Another good international resource is www.worldvitalrecords.com, which features records from the USA, Britain, Canada, Europe and Russia. Free trials are available for this website, one with considerable unique data that you shouldn’t miss.
Meanwhile, if you have ancestors in the British Isles, you might opt to use www.origins.net, which features a comprehensive collection of records stretching back to the 13th century, and can be access by signing up to one of its various payment plans.
