Instead of the regular Friday Genealogy News Corral, I’m sharing some things I learned at the Federation of Genealogical Societies conference today:
- The National Genealogical Society 2013 conference will be in Las Vegas (May 8-11).
- AncestorSync, the folks in the booth next to me, is a way to share genealogy data or sync desktop and online trees without downloading a GEDCOM and uploading it somewhere else (or manually adding the same ancestors in multiple places). So far, it works with Ancestral Quest, Legacy, Mac Family Tree, PAF, RootsMagic and The Master Genealogist desktop programs, and FamilySearch, Geni and OurFamilyology online tree sites, with more to come.
- The Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania (GSP) is having a Pennsylvania Family workshop with Ancestry.com Nov. 5. Twelve presentations include experts from Ancestry.com plus additional speakers including Lisa Alzo and Dear Myrtle.
GSP also is working on a new website, so keep an eye on GenPa.
- 1,000 Memories is a website where you and relatives upload photos, audio and video, and written stories about ancestorsa way of sharing the photos that you inherited, and seeing the ones handed down through your cousin Ednas branch.
- Sort Your Story is software that helps you organize your data and digitized documents. You enter your data in the softwares profiler and use the software to organize documents. The profiler also helps you see what information youre missing for each person in your tree.
- JustaJoy.com is a service that links orphaned heirlooms with the families that originally owned them. The site works with antiques dealers who have items with family connectionscurrently, it lists items associated with 40,000 families. You can search the site to see whats associated with your surname, but you need to join to view information about the listings.
