FamilyTree magazine, one of the top genealogy magazines in the United States, has named the Arkansas History Commission’s website, www.ark-ives.com, as one of its “101 Best Genealogy Websites.”
The magazine ranked websites in 13 different categories with www.ark-ives.com taking top honors in the “Midwestern US Genealogy” category. It is the only genealogy website in Arkansas recognized for this honor.
Calling it a “gorgeous site,” the magazine went on to praise the website’s content, including the one-stop search of county records. 2012 marks the third year in a row that the AHC’s website merited inclusion on FamilyTree’s “Best of The Web” yearly awards.
