Our friends at FamilySearch have been busy today, with a second important notice -- this one about a new designation for genealogy software called "FamilySearch Certified". This certification is described by Generation Maps' Janet Havorka aka the Chart Chick in her blog posting "Official Certification from New FamilySearch" released a few minutes ago.
Attendees of NGS and various genealogy conferences since the first of the year already know that FamilySearch is providing access to programmers who wish to make their software compatible with the "new" version of FamilySearch. This is the first of those software programs to receive this "FamilySearch Certified" designation.
Release of the "new" FamilySearch website has been limited to LDS Church members, but will soon be
released to the world at large. According Gordon Clarke in his certification notice to Generation Maps, the timing of the world-wide release will occur sooner than once thought. To quote the Chart Chick's blog "Gordon says that http://www.familysearch.org/ will link to certified products in the next 30-60 days. And then New FamilySearch will be integrated into http://www.familysearch.org/
towards the end of the year."
CONGRATS to Generation Maps!
Happy family tree climbing!
Your friend in genealogy.
