Suzanne's Genealogy Links

Welcome to my new genealogy links page. This is simply a representation of the sites I have used most often in my own genealogical research.

I would recommend Cyndi's List as an excellent place to start to learn about Internet genealogy, as it has probably the largest collection of thematic genealogy links anywhere. 

Those who are interested in New Zealand genealogy might like to check out my New Zealand general and history pages as well.
