The Oldest Genealogy Sites - Class of 1995

After developing the Genealogy WHOIS service on Live Roots, I thought it would be interesting to see which web sites were launched right when (or a few minutes before) the World Wide Web started becoming mainstream. Here they are:
This is, of course, based on the date the domain name was registered, and does not indicate that the web site went online at that time. Likewise, there were probably a bunch of genealogy sites popping up on public domains (e.g. aol.com, compuserve.com) that I don't have an easy method of capturing. The class of 1996 looks to be a bit larger... stay tuned! (If I missed one, please share the details with me so I can add it)
