Each year Family Tree Magazine selects the best genealogy websites and publishes the list in their magazine and online. This year they have decided, given this is the 50th anniversary of the Star Trek series, to as they put it “boldly go where no genealogist has gone before. We’re jettisoning old, outdated sites . . . seeking out new frontiers in online genealogy, sites not afraid to innovate at warp speed.” As a result, many older sites were replaced with new one. You can read their article 101 Best Websites for Genealogy in 2016 here. You can also pick up their September 2016 containing the article on newsstands now.
