More on AncestorSync

DearREADERS,
So last Friday, Ol' Myrt here introduced you to AncestorSync and Geni during the GeneaBloggers BlogTalk internet show. Now you've got two more AncestorSync-related items to further your understanding of this technology and how it will assist you with your genealogy database management.

A BLOG POST
Genealogy techie Tamura Jones has written a well-illustrated and insightful explanation of what AncestorSync is and what it does. See: http://www.tamurajones.net/HowAncestorSyncWorks.xhtml

TONIGHT'S WEBINAR
Join Geni.com and AncestorSync in their webinar which begins in 45 minutes. They will demonstrate phase one of the syncing options, and take live questions and answers. Here's where you go to sign up for the webinar: http://geniwebinars.com.

According to Geni - "No more need for messy GEDCOM import/export where data gets mangled and lost. Let AncestorSync and Geni be your seamless interface for moving your family tree data anywhere you would like without losing any of your important data. Sources, photos, and documents are all kept in tact. Best of all, AncetorSync will keep your desktop software in sync with Geni.com automatically. GEDCOM is so yesterday."  

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt     :)
DearMYRTLE,
Your friend in genealogy.

  2. Wow!
    Tamura Jones's article is fantastic.
    She really is the genealogy technology guru, but explained it in a way even I can understand.
    Keep the good links coming.
    Thanks Myrt!
