The following is a list of bookmarks for access to various genealogy related WWW resources, sites and homepages. I have distilled the listing into higher quality sites most useful for researchers. I have included some of the better Civil War Resources at the bottom of this page. Some of these are very excellent and others are still in development. I welcome any new outstanding pages.

This page has been maintained as one including sites which can be used by everyone. However, I've had numerous requests for inclusion of family-oriented pages and commercial sites. Some of these are excellent and these are now included on a Family-Oriented and Commercial Genealogy Page as received.

"I cannot think that we are useless or God would not have created us.
There is one God looking down on us all. We are all the children of one God. The sun, the darkness, the winds are all listening to what we have to say."
