urlist + Genealogy = Neat Discoveries

I learned something new today!  There is a site on the web called urlist.

I don’t know about you and I always struggle with having too little space and too many favorite URLs ... this means I am always pruning my list.  I just don’t have the discipline to keep a separate document with them all in it.

Well, now I don’t have to ...  I learned about urlist where one can

 “Create lists with your favorite links on topics you’re passionate about.
Keep your links always at hand, from work or home. Easily share your lists with your friends or coworkers, on presentations and blogs.”

What was really neat is that this week there was a focus on genealogy!  Nothing like seeing someone’s list of great genealogy websites to start thinking of creating your own!

Have you created a genealogy-themed urlist?  If so, post the URL as a comment here or on the NGS Facebook page!

  1. I first saw urli.st used very effectively in a classroom setting in July. There was no search ability and lists were shared via word of mouth (or facebook). It is good to see that this useful function, and others, have been added. The lists that Timothy McQuaid has added since then are great examples of the usefulness of the service. Kudos to him.
