Web Sites Worth Surfing: Update

Over the years, we have profiled more than 200 websites in our popular Web Sites Worth Surfing feature. However, several websites that have been profiled no longer exist or have moved to new URLs. We have reviewed past Websites Worth Surfing, and list the website’s name, the current URL and the issue of Family Chronicle in which it was originally featured (ND02 is Nov/Dec 2002). Websites marked with a heart symbol were selected as an Editor’s Pick in their original form.
