51. Distant Cousin
A reminder that we're all distant cousins, this free genealogy site offers numerous searchable databases including ship passenger lists, city directories, alumni lists, cemeteries, birth, death, and marriage records. Simple navigation and whole site surname search make it easy to find what you need quickly.

52. Danish Emigration Archives
Compiled by the Danish Emigration Archives and The City Archives of Aalborg, this free genealogy database contains emigration lists compiled by the Copenhagen Police from 1869 to 1940. These lists give the name, last residence, age, year of emigration and first destination of the emigrant from Denmark. Currently, records are available for the years 1869 to 1908, covering 394,000 emigrants.

53. Cyndi's List
Most of you have probably used this amazing free genealogy directory at least once, but I bet there is more left to explore. Cyndi and her team have categorized over 250,000 genealogy links into over 180 categories, with a majority of them pointing to free genealogy sites. Of special note are the sections on Surnames & Family Associations and Personal Genealogy Home Pages.

54. Greenville County, SC Historical Records
There are dozens of Web sites offering free South Carolina genealogy records, but I'm highlighting this one for the sheer number of digital records they've made available online, including deeds, wills, probate records and district court records. The records are in digital format only, but the indexes (when available) have also been digitized.

55. JewishGen Family Finder
If you have Jewish ancestry, then don't miss this free genealogy database of ancestral towns and surnames currently being researched by over 78,000 Jewish genealogists worldwide. Containing over 390,000 entries (including 100,000 ancestral surnames and 18,000 town names), it is indexed and cross-referenced by both surname and town name.
