features are free. They have a lot of 'helps'. A town/county
locator. Search Engine Index. Genealogy forms to print out.
A huge category of hosted mailing lists.
Then you get to the actual genealogy sites. Try both the
town/county/states and the 'Freepages'. Ancestry.com has
changed the navigation so it'smuch harder to find what you
want unless you know the surname. I like to browse an entire
site so when I find Rootsweb pages, I save the URL.

Linkpendium - From the founders of Rootsweb. Almost
5 million links for surnames and almost 600,000 for US

From the Latter Day Saints. They run the "Family History
