Cyndi's List, the online "Yellow-pages" of genealogy, is celebrating its tenth year with a new look and feel. Today the site boasts over 251,000 categorized links and is one of the most popular starting points on the Internet.
Cyndi's List began back in 1996 as a six-page article written for her local genealogy society. It went online on March 4, 1996 and was announced as such:
You are cordially invited to visit our new genealogy home page entitled: Mark and Cyndi's Family Tree http://www.oz.net/~cyndihow/
The many resources include:

We hope you enjoy our new page and would love to hear from you!
