Brendan Swemmer I'm without supercomputer for a while. While it can get repetitive and we know discussion search is not great, it's really fun for me - and I hope others - to see members sharing their discoveries here.
There's a bit of deja vu in the last few discussion posts - see my comment at http://www.geni.com/discussions/105001?msg=769778 and the comments below it from Erica and Lars.
I do think we need a place to organise these resources in a project or Wiki page(s).
A project on Geni research resources would complement the project I created for Geni research volunteers at http://www.geni.com/projects/Geni-research-volunteers.
There are also country portals such as http://www.geni.com/projects/Australian-Portal and http://www.geni.com/projects/Portaal-voor-Nederlandstaligen and http://www.geni.com/projects/Geni-Israel where resources that are country-specific can also be cross-referenced and included.
Just today I received a private message from another Geni user with links to some great Australian and NZ resources.
He or I could list them here where they will be difficult to spot once they roll off current page. I would also like to list them on the Australian portal and the Notable NZ project, and an overall Geni research resources project.
How about a discussion in the http://www.geni.com/projects/Geni-research-volunteers project?
We're all rsesearch volunteers helping each other.
Many genealogy resources for Brooklyn NY and other boroughs
Erica - see http://www.geni.com/discussions/105860
Ordering by region should be useful (like it is done on http://www.geni.com/projects/Portaal-voor-Nederlandstaligen ?)
Categorizing genealogy links is exactly what Cindi's List already does:
Its list of 300,000 links will always be just a bit larger than the one we have been discussing in this thread:)
There is also a specialized genealogy search engine for those who don't know:
You can now search @familysearch.org "Family History Books" a collection of more than 40,000 digitized genealogy and family history publications from the archives of some of the most important family history libraries in the world. These include books at the Family History Library and the Allen County Public Library.
National Library of Australia site: I've picked up a lot of births deaths and marriages from this one:
Lots of info in the PRO:
By the way, folks, the Gale Group features among it's databases, access to full text searchable newspapers covering the period from 1600 - today, including The Times Digital Archive. These are licenced resources but can usually be accessed online of you have a library card for a library that has bought a licence:
Thanks Lynne for the Australian reference.
At http://www.geni.com/projects/Australian-Portal we have a link to the higher level resource index page at http://www.nla.gov.au/family-history/genealogy-selected-websites from where you can get to the newspaper trove and a lot lot more!
Thank you Malka Mysels for thinking to put it here.
It's their research on Jewish Women that I've been finding so useful for the Herodian era: http://jwa.org/research/
It's surprisingly difficult to find research work on these women, and some of these articles are the best summaries to be found anywhere on the net.

Louisiana Biography and Obituary Index
at the Historical New Orleans Collection
I perused this thread and didn't find this website mentioned. http://www.britroyals.com If it has been mentioned, please accept my apologies for the repeat!
A useful source:
The start of a new medieval website, designed to aggregate the information already available by linking to it.
I don't know who is creating it. Maybe Will Johnson, whose announcement I saw at soc.genealogy.medieval.
The choice of site name is a bit unfortunate, at least from Geni's standpoint, but the idea is very cool. If the author continues, he'll have a hit.
