New Additions to the Top 100 List
The table below shows the new additions this year to the Top 100 List.
A couple of point:
• There were three societies that made the list this year for the first time. They are from Australia (Western Australian Genealogical Society, already mentioned), Poland (Polskie Towarzystwo Genealogiczne) and Finland (The Genealogical Society of Finland).
• Finally, we would like to point out Historic MapWorks (at #93), which has a large collection of map records.
The Big Three
The field of genealogy is dominated by three large firms: Ancestry, MyHeritage and brightsolid (better known as FindMyPast). The table below shows the top 50 genealogy websites. All the websites highlighted in color are owned by one of these large firms.
