I have come to really cringe when I read/hear the term "Internet genealogy" simply because I know that it does not really exist. The term is often used in a context that makes "Internet genealogy" appear to be something apart and separate from what some people must think of as "that other kind of genealogy" - (remember the kind using original records on microfilm or in books?). We can use the Internet for genealogical research, but in the end our passion is a unified one, defined by a single word: genealogy. Therefore, the discussion should really be about how we "use the Internet for genealogy."
