Top UK Genealogy web sites

A list of the 100 top genealogy web sites has been published by GenealogyInTime and I reproduce the sites most relevant to British genealogists:

4 FamilySearch records Worldwide free
6 records UK pay
14 FindMyPast UK records UK pay
24 Genes Reunited records UK pay
36 Free BMD records UK free
42 Roots Chat forum UK free
53 ScotlandsPeople records Scotland pay
58 Genuki records UK free
59 British History Online records UK free
60 thePeerage records UK free
66 British Newspaper Archive newspapers UK pay
72 Forces War Records records UK pay
82 Lost Cousins family tree UK pay
91 British-Genealogy forum UK free
92 The Genealogist records UK pay
93 Commonwealth War Graves records UK free

It should be realised that FamilySearch has one worldwide site while, for instance, Ancestry has several, the top being Compared with last year the number of free sites in the top 100 has dropped, while the British Newspaper Archive is a very respectable new entry.
