Every year GenealogyInTime Magazine publishes its top 100 genealogy websites list. It covers both free and fee sites, and each site listed is hot-linked.
One of the more interesting parts of the article is the explanation of the methodology used to build the list. Knowing that makes the list much more interesting if not more useful. For instance, popularity is a function of not only how many visitors to the site, but also by how much time they spend there, and how much of the site content is consumed.
You may find some sites on the list that didn’t make it on your radar. Check it out at: Top 100 Genealogy Websites of 2015
