Please note:  I've tried to only add links here that are non-commercial, kid-friendly, or if they are commercial, at least they look like they have merits beyond selling a product, etc.  My hope for this page is that it could be a place where a kid who is interested in any of the Right Here on This Spot topics, could learn a little more about any they were interested in, and have fun in the process.

If you know of any sites that fit that description, that you think should be added to the list, please email me so I can check them out!  Thanks!

Archaeology & Anthropology

An Exhaustive List of Archaelogical / Anthropological Sites
There are literally hundreds of sites listed here covering every aspect of the fields.  The site is intended to serve as a resource for K-12 teachers, but you can tell from the captions whether a site would be geared towards kids or adults/teachers/etc.

National Geographic Magazine
National Geographic, as might be expected, has a truly great site geared towards kids.  They are often involved in all kinds of topics related to the book--including archaeology.  They have lots of activities and always keep the site up to date.

Ancient Middle America
An odd site to list here in a sense, but included because of it's depth.   It's a website to support a college course at the University of Minnesota, Duluth, but it's list of anthropology links, etc. are so worthwhile I decided to include it.   They even have a "Paleo-Ring" of sites dedicated to Paleo Studies.

Geneaology

Cyndi's List
I have no idea who this person is...all I know is as soon as I started looking into Genealogy, this lady's site, or references to it and it's information, popped up everywhere.  I haven't used it much, but it appears to be very comprehensive.

Family Search
A very useful and friendly site to new users and amateurs.   This site is run by the Mormon church as I understand it.  With knowledge of your grandparents, it is often possible to trace your ancestors back several generations in a matter of minutes.

Rootsweb
Another HUGE resource.
