I receive lots of requests from people wanting to find Free genealogy research sites, locational sites, and web based genealogy information in general.  In order to help you find "my favorite" genealogy websites, I have created a DELICIOUS page.
Delicious is a Yahoo-based social bookmarking website, which means it is designed to allow you to store and share bookmarks on the web, instead of inside your browser. This has several advantages.
First, you can get to your bookmarks from anywhere, no matter whether you're at home, at work, in a library, or on a friend's computer, you always have access to your 'favorites'.
Second, you can share your bookmarks publicly, so your friends, coworkers, and other people can view them for reference, amusement, collaboration, or anything else. (Note that you can also mark bookmarks on Delicious as private – only viewable by you – if you like.)
Third, you can find other people on Delicious who have interesting bookmarks and add their links to your own collection. Everyone on Delicious chooses to save their bookmarks for a reason. You have access to the links that everyone wants to remember. You can see whether two people have chosen to remember a link, or whether it was useful enough for a thousand people to remember – which may help you find things that are useful for you, too.  
If you set up a Delicious page, be sure to 'friend' me, so we can connect our lists.
