Useful Internet Resources

These are some Internet sites that I've found useful in my research. I'd appreciate hearing about any quality resources that are not on this list!

Dictionary of the City of London
A gazeteer of over 6,000 street and place names in London; their location, origin and changes. Medieval references are frequent. An invaluable reference work.

The Europäische Stammtafeln is a collection of genealogical tables for important families that played a role in continental European history. A complete index to all volumes of ES is found at
Stammtafeln Register.

Foundation for Medieval Genealogy
Objectives: to promote rigorous scholarship in the field of medieval genealogical, prosopographical, and related research. Membership is required to view some of the resources; however, of particular value are the publicly-available corrections to Keats-Rohan's two-volum prosopographical series, Domesday People and Domesday Descendants.

The aim of GEN UKI is to serve as a "virtual reference library" of genealogical information that is of particular relevance to the UK & Ireland.
