Many wikis have a WikiNode or similarly-named page, grouping related wikis for ease of navigation between them. (This is the same basic idea as WebRing, except here it is shown not as a small feature on each page, but as the main content on a specific page. For part of its origins, see http://wikinodes.wiki.taoriver.net/moin.cgi/WikiNodesProject)
For convenience certain non-wiki sites are listed on this page as well. These sites are considered to be of particular utility for genealogists. The objective here is not to provide a comprehensive listing of such sites, but to focus on sites of great utility.
Historical Note: use of the "CamelCase" format as applied to the name of this page, arose in the days when page names had to be single "words". We don't need to use it here but it's harmless and friendly when relating to sites that are stuck with it.

There are several Wiki sites not associated with Wikia. Each offers slightly different approaches to genealogy. The first three are similar to Genealogy, though more rigidly organized, and are focused on family lineages; there is an on going discussion between these sites directed toward a merger. The fourth site is focused on technical topics about genealogy, rather than on laying out specific family relationshps.

Genealogy is a very popular hobby, and this is reflected in the multitude of genealogical sites present on the web. While these are not Wiki style sites, they provide excellent sources for information that are of use to genealogists. The following is not intended as a comprehensive list of such sites, but as a directory of certain key sites widely recognized for their broad content, and utility. The blurb accompanying each link is taken from the site itself. Some of these sites are free, some are subscription services, some combine both free data and subscription services.
