Gee, Sharing Genealogy Just Got Easier
GenealoGee.com is a new genealogy bookmarking site for genealogists and hobbyists to share blog posts, articles, news and other information with each other. The site has a similar purpose as the popular online news site "Digg," but it is focused exclusively on family history and genealogy. As the site grows in popularity and more people contribute articles, GenealoGee.com will become an increasingly valuable resource for locating online information about genealogy. The site is entirely free for users.
Two Functions of GenealoGee.com: Submit Articles for Others' Benefit and Read Articles Deemed Helpful
Articles are published at GenealoGee.com by members of the "GenealoGee" community who read a useful article and "Submit" it to the site for others to see. At launch time, the content also comes in through RSS feeds of top-rated genealogy blogs. As articles are submitted, users see them and vote for the stories they like best. Stories with the most votes are moved from "Upcoming News" to "Published News" on the home page.
To read the posts that are popular in the genealogy world, visit the home page to see the stories with the most votes. However, all submitted articles are categorized as well. If you're looking for Genealogy News, Help for Beginners, Genealogy Blog posts, information about Conferences, or other topics, select your desired Category from the home page to read relevant information.
To find other genealogy enthusiasts and discuss a specific area of interest, visit the Groups page and select your desired topic or create your own.
