Check out the genealogy site contest

Who has the best genealogy site on the web?  200 sites including Canada's Anglo-Celtic Connections , are nominated.

This "contest" is being run by County-Clerks.com, "a directory of every single county clerk's office in the United States. There are over 3,000 county clerks offices that we have contact information for." US counties are way outside the scope covered in this blog, but that's true of many others nominated.

Looking down the list here there are many well known sites nominated, and others that look interesting you may want to investigate.

There are also excellent sites not nominated which should be in the list. It's not too late. Send a nomination email to adam@county-clerks.com with subject= “add site for contest”.

A contest or poll is a good way for a site to generate traffic; I'll be interested to see how much the contest moves its Alexa rank, currently 1,556,248.

Hey John,

Thanks for the commentary and good luck to you :-)

Great to see my Scottish GENES blog on the list - though could I advise everyone not to bother voting for it, as it hasn't been updated since December 2011!
