My Best Genealogy Sites for 2011

As 2011 draws to an end i have been thinking which Genealogy sites have been the best . Some of then you may not know, feel free to add your favourites to this list by leaving a comment.These are my top fiveG in no particualar order.

Family search.org is a free site to help you discover your family history. They have millions of records taken from hundreds of collections. It is a site that is being upgraded all the time.
https://www.familysearch.org/


The Census of Ireland covers the years 1901 and 1911. These represent a valuable part of the Irish National heritage. I have found them to be a really good resource in my own research. The next best thing about them is that they are free, unlike the English 1911 Census where you have to pay to view a record.

FreeBMD. This site covers birth,marriage and death records for England and Wales. I have found it to be a very valuable resource,easy to use and it is free.I return to it often when i need to look for Ancestors in the BMD records.

Online Lancashire Parish Clerks. This is a useful site if you are researching Ancestors from Lancashire. Here the records form various parishes have been collected and this Data is free to search and view. It is also updated regularly.

'Ros Davies'Co Down Northern Ireland . Any one researching Co Down in Northern Ireland has to visit this site, its just full of information that you will not find on other sites. It is also a free site.
