Steve Rockwood: 4 Four Ways Innovators Can Redefine the Genealogical Industry:

Top 10 Genealogy Resources:
Planting the Seeds
"Judy G. Russell, CG, CGL, posted her legal-centric list at “Top 10 genealogy websites” on her award-winning blog The Legal Genealogist. The theme was started by James Tanner’s post “My Top Ten Genealogy Programs for Now” at his blog Genealogy’s Star. Several other bloggers have also followed suit (and Judy names a few, so I will not repeat the list here).
My list will be a little different. I will not focus exclusively on resources or websites, but instead on foundational works."

But there is one detail that sets them apart from most: Their mother abandoned them both as infants, leaving them in cardboard boxes."
