Wearing my Genuki hat.........................
The Sunday times yesterday had a survey of genealogy sites.
GENUKI is listed third of eight, behind the LDS and Cyndi's List:
The volunteer-run UK and Ireland Genealogy Information Service
(Genuki) is an outstanding first port of call for anyone wanting to
get started in genealogy. The design is hardly frilly, but Genuki
sets out things with commendable clarity. Crucially, it explains
that the web is a superb index to the available paper archives, and
must be seen as that - the bulk of genealogical data is still held
on paper and microfiche. Genuki also suggests setting realistic
aims: English and Welsh families should have little trouble in
tracing back to 1837, Scots to 1855 and Irish to 1922 (when the
Irish national archives burnt down), but finding information from
before these years is more haphazard.
