Cyndi's List - Internet Genealogy

Cyndi's List - Internet Genealogy:
"Cyndi's Soapbox
I have come to really cringe when I read/hear the term 'Internet genealogy' simply because I know that it does not really exist.
The term is often used in a context that makes 'Internet genealogy' appear to be something apart and separate from what some people must think of as 'that other kind of genealogy' - (remember the kind using original records on microfilm or in books?).

We can use the Internet for genealogical research, but in the end our passion is a unified one, defined by a single word: genealogy. Therefore, the discussion should really be about how we 'use the Internet for genealogy.'"
