Online Digitized Collections for Genealogy

There are a fabulous number of books online but, likely, no one actually knows how many there are. I recently surveyed a number of large online digitized libraries and decided the problem was impossible to solve due to some libraries counting images or pages and some counting whole books. My best estimate is that there are over 10 million books online and growing daily.

By far the largest collection is in Google Books. A single word search in Google Books on "genealogy" returns over 160,000 books.

Here is a list of digital collections dealing with books pertinent to genealogy:
From time to time in near future I will be reviewing these Websites and commenting on the collections. Stay tuned for further developments.
