GenealogyBuff.com recognizes STAR QUALITY genealogy sites which deserve special mention. Below you will see
the sites which we consider STAR genealogy sites. None of these sites are owned by the owner of Genealogybuff.com.
- Don't be confused by the similarity of the names! Genealogyblog.com
is a totally separate site and an absolute jewel in the online genealogy
world! You'll quickly see why it is our very first STAR site.
The blog is loaded with information in a very potpourri, yet organized
fashion. Archives are available for earlier blogs, which I
noted are a treasure chest for interesting reading.
Joe Edmon, one of the site's owners, says, "Genealogy Blog is a place for the genealogy community to come and share information and a great way to stay up-to-date in the genealogy field. It is written by genealogists for genealogists. The blog covers the latest news in the genealogy field, provides announcements, quick reviews of new products, and provides useful information and tips for genealogists.
"Our goal is to provide a central location for the latest goings-on in genealogy. Whether it's new product releases, new information found on the Web, or some new tips and lessons-learned you'll find it on Genealogy Blog. We seek to be informative, interesting, and entertaining.
"We are a resource for beginning and new genealogists, by being a window to the millions of genealogy websites that are available. We don't review sites that we feel don't offer value to genealogists, or that are just come-ons for getting people into the fee-sites.
"In addition to the genealogy side, we also write posts that help people with the computer and technical side of genealogy, so that they can better use the tools that are available."
Family Dots - What a site that this webmaster has created!
Tons of birth records, marriages, deaths, obituaries, military records,
etc., all laid out in very organized tables, perfect for the eyes of the
Aside from the generous amount of data, Connecting Family Dots has an elegant theme, pleasing to the eyes.
Of special note is the biography section. Brief bios are found for quite a few ancestors but it doesn't stop there. A 'Bio Entry' form is included for visitor contributions.
It is a privilege to call this a GenealogyBuff.com STAR site!
Castle - While not necessarily a genealogy site, I was very
impressed with the totally Scottish flavor of everything with the fabulous
photos of the castle and links to many Scottish resources.
A bed and breakfast of sorts, with apartments and catering services, this
would be where I would want to stay if I were on a "homeland" expedition!
From their site, "The Edinburgh Castle website has many photographs of the various artefacts contained in Edinburgh Castle and pertaining to the Castle and Edinburgh itself."
The "History of Edingurgh Castle" page is fascinating...
Be sure to check out the free wallpaper section...awesome photos!
Another wonderful GenealogyBuff.com STAR site!
Genealogy - A delightful, fresh new site focussing on African-American
genealogy. The site is very attractive, with a clean, professional
appearance. Several interesting articles are referenced,
very eloquently written, and discuss the topic of Slave Ancestry.
Ms. Kenyatta D. Berry, Esq., a lawyer, historian, genealogist and
researcher, maintains Discover Genealogy and provides professional
genealogy research and consultation, while situated near the National Archives.
Ms. Berry is also an accomplished lecturer and workshop leader (ref. http://www.funside.com/cal_nov.asp).
Congratulations to Discover Genealogy and Ms. Kenyatta D. Berry for promoting and encouraging African-American genealogy and becoming our next GenealogyBuff STAR site!
