In sorting, numbers are listed for first but numbers are not included in the A to Z, so I am including a site that starts with a number.

23 and Me
"Learn more about your health, traits, and ancestry, with a package of 125+ reports that only the 23andMe service offers."

These are websites I know, have used and found helpful. There are many more.
If you have other favourite sites that start with the letter A or a number,
please add to the comments below.
Websites change. These are correct as of 2019.




  2. You will have a very useful list by the time you get to Z. Can't wait to see how you handle the HARD letters.

  3. I'm just starting family genealogy research and I look forward to learning all the resources. I plan to pin for future reference (when I'm not so busy with other A-Z challenge duties) :)

    1. I completely understand. So nice to be able to pin for later. You can also sign up for emails, file them away and then find them later.

      Good luck with your challenge!!

  4. My local library system lets patrons use Ancestry (and other genealogy databases) for free, though some features are pay-only. I've found so many great documents from my searches!

  5. Aren't libraries great. They have found a new way to support the community and this is one of the really good ones. Ancestry is wonderful
