Happy Anniversary to Cyndi's List
The Genuki Internet Timeline indicates that Internet genealogy began in 1983* with posts to the ROOTS.net newsgroup.
So when did internet genealogy get organized? Fourteen years ago today, March 5, 1996, when Cyndi's List first appeared. Cyndi's list remains an invaluable resource to librarians, archivists, family historians and genealogists.
Cyndi has been working hard to keep her links updated and has added a entire new section on social networking in genealogy. If you haven't stopped by lately, check out the freshly updated website. You never know what new links you'll find!
