Top 100 Genealogy Websites of 2013: Kimberly Powell Talks About GeneaNet

We thank Kimberly Powell very much for her appreciation of GeneaNet:

"[This annual review] is also notable for including genealogy sites based around the world, including GeneaNet.org--one of my personal favorites--which is the second highest ranked free website after FamilySearch. GeneaNet does offer a great deal for free, including its forums which is how it was listed, but in the interest of fairness it does require a fee-based premium membership (which I personally consider very worthwhile as a frequent user), for extra search features and access to some of the historical content."
