This site allows you to create a family tree but will also let you research various census and other records for ancestors

If another user has created a tree with people that match your tree then basic details are show in a 'Hot Matches' area. The more elements that match your tree (names, common relations, dates, etc...) the hotter the match.
Genlighten is a really neat site that connects those looking for family history with researchers who actually gather the data for them (sometimes physically, if necessary).
