These are some general research links that may assist you in your genealogy quest. Most are free, but some
are now for pay subscription sites. It is always worth looking to see if there is a free site with the
information you need online before paying for a subscription. One note that must be made: many of these
online genealogy sites contain questionable research done by those with less than exacting standards who
have often jumped to wrong conclusions without corroborating documentation. These pedigrees have been
linked and merged with those pedigrees that have primary source documentation and this can make it easy
to assume that all the information is accurate. You MUST look for documentation to backup the conclusions
being made in these pedigrees in order to ensure you are following the right lineage.
