Some people eat, sleep and chew gum, I do genealogy and write...

UNESCO Archive Portal

Just when you might possibly believe that there were no more huge collections of online genealogy resources, along comes The United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization with its Archives Portal. Styled as an international gateway to information for archivists and archives users, it is one of the most complete and up-to-date sites I have encountered recently. I am constantly surprised that there always seems to be another huge Website missing from everyone's compilation of the 40 or 100 or whatever best Websites for genealogy. Even if you spent the next couple of weeks online it is unlikely that you could begin to review all of the links to possible sites.

Not all of the linked resources are online but the listing of possible sources seems to be endless. Its not so much that the links are that extensive, it is that the links themselves lead to other sites with even more links to archived material both online and in physical repositories.
