West Gippsland Genealogical Society Genie Links

There is a daily increase in web sites dedicated to family history research and information. It is important to be aware of the principles of sound research, in keeping accurate records and be disciplined in recording the sources of the information that you find. Remember that many sites are adding information that has not been verified and that it is wise to follow the links and verify the information with primary source documents where possible for your self.

We have put together a range of websites that is by no means exhaustive but which our members find useful for their research.

We have split the links into sections to make it less cumbersome so it is worth checking all of the areas. Please report any links that are not working so that we can fix or delete them Report Broken Links
