Other sites I use on a regular basis:

The only place to get census and BMD stuff.
Previously www.1837online.com. Family tree research online. Births, marriage and death indexes online. Order certificates online. Records include England and Wales and British nationals overseas - including WW1, WW2, Boer War, Marine, Army, Consular, High Commission and Civil Aviation Authority.
The home of the International Genealogical Index. Lots of useful, searchable information.
The GENUKI site - a starting point for all sorts of useful information.
The home for the mailing lists above and their associated message boards.
All sorts of information can be found here, including the searchable Register of Seamens' Service via the Documents Online tab.
The village by village contact site for anybody researching family history, genealogy and local history in the UK and Ireland. Every UK county, town and village has a page for family history, local history, surname and genealogy enquiries.
Late 18th, 19th and early 20th Century Naval and Naval Social History. If you can't find what you need here, it probably doesn't exist!
The UK's no.1 family tree and genealogy site with over 5 million members joined already. I have started a family tree on the site. Search for Joanne Newman born 1964 in Watford, Hertfordshire.
LostCousins is the only family history site able to match you with others researching the same ancestors. I have added a few names to this site, but I'm not a full subscriber. Search for John Madagascar Quinn born 1835.
More than 300 useful URLs culled from the DERBYSGEN mailing list since 1st May 2000. Some lead to free sites, others to pay sites. Some links may no longer work as the owner does not have time to check them all.
I have found (probably!) distant cousins who still live in the Hebburn area by posting messages on this board. There is a link to the main Hebburn site from which Norman Dunn's site of old photographs can be accessed - fascinating stuff.
The site is dedicated to the Coastguards who lived and worked around the Irish coastline between the 18th and early 20th centuries.
