Online site for storing family trees
I began playing around with a new online site– Geni.com. Oh the irony. This, after the Ancestry.com scraping you-know-what hit the fan. I’d been thinking about this step last week, though, while I read my letters in the attic– I want to know how old everyone is at the time the letter was written. Geni.com begins dead simple. Start filling out information. A look at their Terms of Service emphasizes privacy, privacy, privacy. From what I’ve seen thus far, they get it. (Note: I met people from Geni.com at the Genealogy Jamboree; they gave me the coolest swag ever– a pen that lights up)

Everyone has 'em.
They tell where you come from. They hold secrets to who you are.
This site explores how to use digital tools and media to record and preserve spoken memories of family members.
