Whether you're a family history newcomer or a seasoned ancestry sleuth, our 15th annual collection of the best genealogy sites on the web can help enrich your genealogical research. Take a look to see which sites made this year's list.
Times flies when you’re having fun researching your family history.
It’s hard to believe, but this is our 15th annual installment of
the 101 Best Websites for genealogy research. (If you do the
math, that’s 1,515 total website write-ups, though of course
many honorees repeat from year to year.) To celebrate the
occasion, we’ve broken this year’s roster of outstanding
websites into 15 categories—which also makes it easy for you
to zoom in on the type of site you’re looking to explore, from
social media sites to maps to state or foreign databases.
As before, in
the list that follows, we’ve indicated with a $ symbol sites
that require a subscription or other payment to access the core
content; mostly free sites that also offer paid premium services
don’t carry the $ sign.
