It is great that three genealogy societies made the Top 100 List this year. They are (#38) American Ancestors (the New England Historic Genealogical Society), (#57) Daughters of the American Revolution and new this year (#77) Ontario Genealogical Society.
It is also good to see that five genealogy blogs made the Top 100 List this year. They are (#22) Eastman’s Online Genealogy Newsletter by Dick Eastman, (#80) Genea-Musings by Randy Seaver, (#89) Geneabloggers by Thomas MacEntee, (#94) Genealogy Blog by Leland & Patty Meitzler and (#95) Anglo-Celtic Connections by John D Reid.
There were also a couple of genealogy blogs that fell just outside of the Top 100 List. These include Dear Myrtle by Pat Richley-Erikson, Olive Tree Genealogy by Lorine McGinnis Schulze, British Genes by Chris Paton and Irish Genealogy News by Claire Santry. All excellent blogs.
We were a bit surprised this year that more Australian genealogy websites did not make the Top 100 List (Trove does not qualify because it is part of the Australian National Library website). A few of the Australian genealogy websites that did rank highly were the Western Australia Genealogical Society, FindMyPast Australia, CoraWeb, and Gould Genealogy.
