My friend Lisa Alzo queried Ol’ Myrt and a number of other genealogy writers for input about trends we see coming down the pike in the world of genealogy. She plans to work the feedback we provided into an article for Family Chronicle magazine. However, her request did not preclude the cross posting of my thoughts on the subject here in my blog over the next few days. I look forward to reading what my colleagues think the future holds for family historians when Lisa’s article goes to press.
In response to What Sources (databases, technologies, etc.) or trends you think will be “hot” in the coming year, Ol’ Myrt continued by noting:
A growing entity, this wiki will benefit researchers who aren’t sure how to proceed with records research in a newly discovered ancestral place. I may know a lot about Maryland research, but find the FamilySearch Wiki provides ideas and insights for other areas where I am just venturing out in research. This will eventually replace the research outlines, and are fully annotatable by practically anyone.
Happy family tree climbing!
Your friend in genealogy.
