VGA Named as one of Family Tree Magazine 101 Best Websites 2023!

Press Release from Family Tree Magazine:

Family Tree Magazine Announces New Edition of the 101 Best Websites for Genealogy,
Updated and Revised for 2023

For immediate release: June 1, 2023:
It is our pleasure to release our new 101 Best Websites for Genealogy list, updated and revised
for 2023. With more and more genealogy tools coming online every day, this annual list
highlights the best resources for genealogy enthusiasts to add to their toolkit. This year’s
list includes 18 websites that are either brand new or returning to the list after an absence.
These include sites for discovering records, researching photos, preserving family
heirlooms and much, much more.

This year’s list includes websites of all sizes, from massive subscription websites like
Ancestry and MyHeritage, to lesser-known sites powered by volunteers. Readers will
encounter websites that are making long-lost records accessible again; for example the
Virtual Record Treasury of Ireland allows users to virtually explore the Public Record
Office of Ireland, which was destroyed in 1922. As always, many of this year’s honorees are
completely free to use, or offer select free resources.

The 101 Best Genealogy Websites list is compiled by founding Family Tree Magazine editor
David A. Fryxell. It contains a wide variety of websites so that any family historian can find
a resource for their own genealogy research. The websites are grouped into categories for
easy browsing, and subscription websites are indicated with a dollar sign ($). This year we
are launching the list in tandem with our annual 75 Best State Genealogy Websites, which
contains state-specific resources for all 50 states as well as Washington DC and US

You can find the new, updated 101 Best list on our website by visiting

Both lists will appear in the July/August 2023 issue of Family Tree Magazine, which ships to
magazine subscribers in early June and will be available on newsstands in late June.
