WARNING FROM MICROSOFT on GENEALOGY ...

Thought I'd post this one seperate from the rest of the list ... it is kind of important; not as a resouce, but as a WARNING.

This is Microsoft's take on some of the Scams that are on the market:

I also think the deal where they provide you with your family coat of arms is a scam too. Only noble families had coats of arms. A person may have the same surname as a noble family but he could be from a totally different bloodline. Many surnames have multiple origins. Unless you can trace your personal bloodline back to the noble family who held that coat of arms you don't know if you can honestly claim that coat of arms as your own.

I agree Graffeo ... that sort of fits within the "your name here" type scam, but not quite ...

I thought it was pretty clearly laid out ... and from a reputable company (... depending on the point of view I suppose).
