Remember when you first started using the Internet? How fascinating it was to just go from site to site using “hyperlinks” – sort of like an informational jet pack strapped to your computer?
And then you decided to see if there was anything about your hobby or profession called genealogy out in this great big frontier called The Web. I bet one of the first places you landed was Cyndi’s List.
That’s how it was for me back in 1996 when I first discovered this fantastic resource for genealogy. True confession: Cyndi’s List was like genealogical “crack” for me – I just couldn’t get enough!
Well today, Cyndi Howells of Cyndi’s List is celebrating 15 years of giving to the community! And I personally want to thank her for her years of hard work in providing this FREE site.
How You Can Help Celebrate
