CAVEAT:  Just because you find information on the web (or anywhere) which purports to be correct, as secondary or tertiary information, it should be considered unreliable until you actually verify the information.  Even in cases where you find data in the very reliable LDS IGI database where it indexes an official church or state document, it is always possible that a transcription error crept into the work.  Even if you do trust what is in such an index, that database is just that, an Index and as such cannot conceivably contain all the information available by viewing the original document.


If I am online and have my Gizmo SIPphone activated (or if I have opted to forward calls to one of my other phones) I can be reached by clicking below, or you can leave a voicemail for me.

Links
 
Rootsweb 
A good starting point for access to a wide range of genealogy databases.
USGenWeb 
Locality specific research sites broken down to the county level with research links and forums specific to the individual county.
WorldGenWeb 
Similar to the above USGenWeb, but with a worldwide scope in mind.
Cyndi's List 
Perhaps the best site for finding genealogy resources on the web.
FamilySearch 
This is the LDS (Mormon) Family History website so often heard of in the media lately.  Their online databases include information submitted by others as well as indexed data extracted from official church/state records from around the globe.  In addition, the Family History Library catalog is viewable online and indexes microform media of church and state records which you can rent for viewing at a Family History Center near you.
