Cyndi's List: A Comprehensive List of 70,000 Genealogy Sites on the Internetby Cyndi Howells
Hailed by researchers throughout the world, Cyndi's List is the gateway to Internet genealogy, providing the researcher with more than 70,000 categorized and cross-referenced links to every conceivable genealogical resource on the Internet. Cyndi's List features more than 140 categories listed on more than 430 individual web pages. The site now has about 80,000 visitors each day, with more than 18 million people having stepped through the front door of the site to date.
By 1999 numerous people were asking for a printed version of the site to help them prepare in advance for the time they spent doing their research online. Libraries and Family History Centers also expressed a need for the printed version of Cyndi's List, since with the book version next to each computer terminal, library patrons would be able to spend their limited time online in a productive manner. Hence the appearance of the first edition of the book version of Cyndi's List.
And to no one's surprise, here is the second edition of Cyndi's List--twice the size of the first edition and twice as helpful. Like the first edition, it is designed to reduce the time you spend online by narrowing the focus of your search. With the sudden and explosive growth of genealogy on the Internet, the possibilities for research have become almost endless, but Cyndi's List allows you to impose some controls on this exciting new phenomenon, turning the vast body of data on the Internet into a manageable research tool, one you can feel, touch, and read even when the power is turned off.
