Here is a short list of websites I have found useful in my researches. I have concentrated on less well-known sites and those specific to the Burnell name. There are currently problems with sites hosted on RootsWeb, but I hope these will be available again soon. In the meantime I am linking to archived or alternative versions of these sites.
