From the Sept. 11 edition of the Avotaynu E-Zine:
Jewishgen.org Ranks As 14th Most Popular Genealogy Site
JewishGen.org ranks as the 14th most popular Internet site for genealogy according to a survey done by John D. Reid who maintains an AngloCeltic genealogy blog at http://anglo-celtic-connections.blogspot.com. Reid’s source is Alexa.com which ranks all Internet sites based on traffic to the site. He did not include JewishGen in his ranking, likely because he is unfamiliar with the site, but being the 88,642th most popular location on the entire Internet would make JewishGen the 14th entry on his genealogy list.
Ancestry.com ranks first as a genealogy site and is the 1,082th most popular site on the Internet. Other sites ranking higher than JewishGen include MyHeritage.com, Geni, FamilyTreeDNA,com and the U.S. National Archives.
See you Monday evening!
