Donna Speer Ristenbatt Genealogy - One of the very best of the PaDutch-related individual sites
Kraig Ruckel's Palatine and Pennsylvania Dutch Genealogy - my sentimental favorite because two years ago, on the very first day, the first few minutes, I tried to get started on my family research on the net, I found this page, and sure enough, there was greatgrandfather Penrose Frank in his Civil War regiment, on this page or someplace I reached from it, I no longer know. I thought, wrongly, Oh Wow! This going to be a snap.

German Genealogy Site - For those with German ancestors, a good place to start. It is in both English and German.
General Genealogy Sites
Of course there are a very large number of these but these are the main ones that I in fact use:
The Olive Tree - a very good general site with original information on the Palatines and several other groups, and also a lot of good old ship passenger lists.
The Ellis Island Site - Invaluable for those with later immigrants; you can find the ship they came in on and even in most cases, a picture of the ship!
Rootsweb Main Page - A vast site that has everything but what has been expecially important to me is their mailing lists. Without their mailing lists I would not be where I am.
Ancestry - Another huge and well-known genealogy site, with a large amount of 'hard data'.. It is a membership site but I personally find it worth every penny, and even if you don't, a lot of things are free.
Genforum - The best bulletin boards to quickly find others researching your family.
FamilySearch - The LDS church site, lots of valuable data although not the easiest to use.
This page is not finished but I thihk I have most of the most important ones on it. I hope to add more later. If you have a website you would like me to add, please let me know.
