    Happy New Year.

    You remember that post about family history repository? My cousins, who had to agree with the project since they are more numerous than I am and probably not as tech-savvy, settled on Geni. So we are all using it now. Great stuff. So I agree :-)


  2. Happy New Year to you, too. :)

    Geni looks really cool. I played around with it or a bit,but I haven’t had the time to really get into it, yet. But good to hear that you like it.
