dictionaries for everything!

Dictionary Key Showing Online Or Web Definition Reference


As genealogists, we have our own vocabulary, and as we research different people, in different places, in different eras, we come across words and phrases that have fallen out of common usage in modern times, but we still need to try to make sense of them in their historical context.  Below is a list of dictionaries hot-linked to their free online locations, that offer a range of information specialties, to help you in your genealogy research.

(sidenote: watch for the soon-to-launch website www.GenealogyTopTen.com, which will include great lists like this one!)
