After reading about the World GenWeb as one of the top websites used by professional genealogists, I decided to try it out. It was definitely worth the effort. I found loads of information on an ancestral line I've been stuck on for a year. I have had trouble finding information on my husband's Canadian relatives, but I hit the jackpot with this website.
The WorldGenWeb Project is a world-wide volunteer group of genealogists sharing their information. When I went to this site, I clicked on North America first, and then decided to try the Canada GenWeb just for kicks. Our ancestors come from Prince Edward Island (PEI), so I clicked on that location and then went to PEI Lineages.
My husband has 2 sets of great-great-great grandparents all raised in PEI. This lineage section then let me search for each surname and 3 out of the 4 of them were listed on this site. I found lists of Barlows and Ramsays who lived in PEI that were all related to our relatives. I then was able to email each of the genealogists who posted this information and have already received a few pictures from a nice lady named Carol.
I highly recommend the use of this website and I have these 2 pictures to prove it works.
