Family History Resources on the Internet

With the increased use of the Internet and the growth of genealogy's popularity, it is only natural that genealogists have turned to the Internet to share information about how to do genealogy and where to find information.  The following is a list of Internet sites that might prove helpful for you as you explore your family's history.  The IHRC neither endorses nor is affiliated with any of these organizations.  These are just a few of the websites that we have encountered that provide basic information about genealogical sources, especially those that deal with the ethnic groups within the scope of the IHRC's holdings.  You may also wish to learn more about Family History Sources at the IHRC.
