Make an appointment with Cyndi’s List (http://www.cyndislist.com/). All beginning genealogy publications include a link to Cyndi’s List because it is the ultimate guide for family history links. If you’ve never used Cyndi’s List, take the time to look around. If you’re familiar with the site, look again. Take the time to browse with detail. Don’t try to research your own family’s history, just move through the site and get a feel of all it has to offer. If you have a genealogy blog, share with your readers a new website you discovered through Cyndi’s List.
I love Cyndi's Lists. It's a great place to start when you are looking for a new research avenue. Cyndi does a great job of maintaining the site, but inevitably you will find many dead links. That's just the way the internet is. I suggest doing a Google search for the site's title to find where it moved or using the Wayback Machine to try to find its old self.
