Well, it may not be new to all of you, but it was new to me! Seems to have excellent links to United States web sites – over 1 million links. Good start to a section on the UK and Ireland – over 10,000 links. There is also a section of links to web sites for Surnames – over 8 million links.
What is a gateway web site?
A gateway web site is one that is organized by topic or location and provides hyperlinks to other web sites. In other words a directory of links to other web sites.
Background to Linkpendium
This site is being developed by the original developers of Rootsweb.
Other gateway sites:
My favourite is Mary’s Genealogy Treasures – this is a great web site maintained by Mary! – who is a delightful presenter too! I like the way it is organized! It has good Canadian content.
Also look at:
Cyndi’s List of Genealogical Web Sites – been around for over 15 years – over 300,000 links – and now on a new web site
