Are the Best Things in Life Free?

One of the most frustrating online experiences is the internet search result hook. A promising link leads to a page that requires payment before the information is provided. 

Family Tree Magazine provides a solution to this problem with a  list of "101 Best Free Websites." Thirteen categories allow navigation to areas of interest without having to go through the entire list alphabetically.

While such tried and true websites as Family Search , USGenWeb and Rootsweb  are expected, up and coming websites like the beta WeRelate and the ever expanding BYU Family History Archives appear to be gaining ground.

Check out the list. You might find a new website or discover that an old favorite is worth visiting again. Contact your local Springfield-Greene County Library for help with your online searches.
