    3. November 17, 2008 Online Genealogy Dictionaries and Lists I have been collecting URLs (Web addresses) of various online dictionaries and lists that are useful to genealogists. These are useful when trying to decode foreign or obsolete words often found in genealogy work. Here are a few of my favorites: The Encyclopedia of Genealogy: http://www.eogen.com (Disclaimer: This is a site that I created but the data has been created by many different people. In fact, you can also add data to the Encyclopedia of Genealogy.) Abbreviations Found in Genealogy: FamilySearch has an extensive list at https://wiki.familysearch.org/en/Abbreviations_Found_in_Genealogy_Records. Other lists may be found at : http://www.rootsweb.com/~rigenweb/abbrev.html and http://homepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~sam/abbr.html and http://www.genealogy.com/Glossary/glossary.html and http://www.geisheimer.org/info/gene/abbr.htm A List of Occupations, many of which are archaic. You can discover what your ancestor really did at: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~dav4is/Sources/Occupations.html (with emphasis on England and its 16th and 17th century colonies ) and http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~rigenweb/ocupaton.html and http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~genepool/jobs.htm and http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~wiashlan/occupations.html and http://www.olivetreegenealogy.com/misc/occupations.shtml “Cousinship” - What is a second cousin twice removed?
