Kip's List rivals Cyndi's List
There is a new Portal of Family History Websites –which I’ll call “Kip Sperry’s A to Z Website Lists” Creator, Kip Sperry, said “I have posted a listing of commonly used family history websites alphabetically arranged from A to Z. http://home.byu.net/ks4/?sssdmh=dm13.150380 will be helpful to family history instructors, students, genealogists, and librarians as a quick listing of popular sites. I would call Kips website an alphabetical version of the famous Cyndi’s List which groups genealogy links by category.
Cyndi founded the popular Cyndislist www.cyndislist.com with 268,000 links to genealogy related websites. You can also see the real Cyndi Howells in an interview with Dick Eastman while onboard ship on a recent genealogy cruise. To see this interview go to www.rootstelevision.com - and search for the 8:54 min video title called “Cyndi’s List”
