Do you have a good suggestion for going about this? I thought we had started a project, but in a list over 2500 projects, I couldn' t find it. I would use the list more if it were in alphabetical order by topic, with URL to follow.
Mary, you have been our biggest contributor to this discussion. Do you have any suggestions?
As far as a list of useful websites is concerned...one already exists. The web site is http://www.cyndislist.com/ it has 281,420 genealogy and family links in 180+ categories, including 9,900+ new and uncategorized:)
I don't think they have the doomsday book link but there is the ability to suggest new web sites that will get added to the list.
Also https://learning.familysearch.org/ has +40,000 wiki articles on various localities and issue relating to genealogy research.
I've been wanting to do something like that for my own use, but right now, I'm trying to do research for my trip to Ireland and really can't take on another project. We might look at something like Cyndi's list for ideas on how to categorize, then copy and paste these threads into the categories we want.. I've been posting the links on this discussion because they are easier to find than on my "Favorites" tab. Does Geni have a location where we could organize as a reference? My computer skills have grown from not great to getting okay, and I know others would have some great ideas on how to go about it. Perhaps the Geni staff could work on this as a service for a reference section?
How about using Projects? Easier wiki language, on the site, and easy to find.
Is this what you are referring to? http://www.geni.com/discussions/88774
Put in "Irish Resources" in the search window
Look at related Projects
And then -- check a blank project. It's a wiki page and can be continually edited using WikiMedia language.
There are 2000 projects. You want to make sure a Project doesn't already exist on a topic, that's why you use search.

What a great resource! Here's something for the mix. It's a family website I found last week:
If the site has verifiable sources you can generally rely on its accuracy. If it doesn't, then cross-check with your other sources for the family. If everything matches reasonably well, then you can trust the new site.
Just a reminder -- and I am sure you already know this -- the best source is a contemporary document -- something from the ancestor's own time and place -- recording an event in the ancestor's life, such as birth, death, marriage certificates, will, deeds, census, etc.
