My dad has been working on the family history for several years now.

Recently, I decided I wanted to help him with this, and went looking for some internet accessible genealogy software, on the theory that if it was net enabled we could share the work load. The program I ended up with is called “The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding” by Darrin Lythgoe. Despite the rather odd name, this seems to do everything we need, including supporting GEDCOM files, which means all of my dad’s existing data could be directly imported (yay!).

Well, I’ve now got the data all imported, and the site configured with some reasonable defaults, so if you are a member of my (or Deb’s) extended family and you want access to it, let me know and I’ll send you the log in information. I’ve set up a guest account which lets you see everything, but not edit it. If you do find something that is wrong, the program supports a simple mechanism for suggesting fixes that dad or I can make for you.

Now comes the interesting part: actually learning something about my family history.
