Saturday Night Fun: Top Genealogy Websites

This week's challenge, courtesy of Genea-Musings, is to list our top 10 favorite genealogy-related websites, so here goes:

1. http://www.ancestry.com/ / http://www.rootsweb.com/
2. http://www.familysearch.org/ / http://www.familysearchlabs.org/
3. http://www.usgenweb.org/
4. http://www.footnote.com/
Now that I've got my generic favorites out of the way, these are some of my possibly lesser known faves:
5. Golden Nugget Library
6. Siskiyou Cemetery Central
7. Find-A-Grave
8. Civil War Soldiers and Sailors
9. Newspaper Archive from the Library of Congress
10. Siskiyou History
Here's a bonus ten:
11. 1895 Atlas
12. Ellis Island (also check out: Castle Garden if trying to find immigrant ancestors!)
13. US Dept. of Veterans Affairs (the Gravesite Locator is especially helpful)
14. Trinity Church History and Registers (the landmark early church in New York has many online records)
15. Paper Trail (my John R. Shinn's journal is listed there along with MANY others)
16. NY Times Article Archives
17. Fulton History (lots of New York statewide newspaper articles!)
18. Dibean Michigan Marriage Index
19. Google Books
20. Cyndi's List
I have a lot of other favorite sites listed under the "internet find" tag on my blog.
