MySpace for Genealogists: FamilyLink…The Sequel

I noticed today that one of the Plog’s readers clicked on a link to go to Paul Allen’s Blog. Considering I did not know this blog existed before I saw the link, my curiosity peaked. Who is Paul Allen you ask? Paul Allen is the co-founder of myfamily.com and one of the guru’s behind FamilyLink and WorldVitalRecords.com. Well after reading his post “FamilyLink Members in 34 Countries,” I am more excited by FamilyLink’s potential as the future MySpace for genealogist. Evaluating a web service that is still in beta is extremely difficult when all that is known is the user’s perspective. This blog however gives great insight of the thought process behind FamilyLink. After reading Allen’s comments, I am more convinced that this will be a great service for all involved. It also looks like that the people at FamilyLink have some new and exciting features up their sleeves that may make it less cumbersome to use. So hang in their, sign up, and socialize with your fellow genealogists. It’s up to us, from the certified genealogists to the weekend researcher, to make use of such a great tool and make it a success.
