This Guide is written with two goals in mind:
It is by no means a comprehensive guide. Sites like Cyndi's List or Olive Tree Genealogy (see below) are far more comprehensive than anything I could possibly do. This Guide is a starting point. Nothing more, nothing less.
There are now many thousands of Internet sites devoted to genealogy in some manner. Here is a handful of places to begin your search.
The Encyclopedia of Genealogy serves as a compendium of genealogical tools and techniques. It provides reference information about everything in genealogy except people. It is NOT the place to search for people. Instead, it "serves as a clearinghouse of genealogy techniques: where to find records, how to organize the data found, what the terminology means, and how to plan your next research effort." It is a service of Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter.
