GenoPro Newsletter - May 2007

Submit your Favorite Genealogy Links

Dear Firstname,
Welcome to the fifth edition of the GenoPro Newsletter.  If you missed our previous newsletters they are available online.

Announcing a new free service - Genealogy Links

Many GenoPro users are amateur genealogists and are interested in finding online information on their ancestors. In order to better help users create their genealogy tree, GenoPro has created a new section on the Website where users can submit their favorite genealogy links.

The site is divided in multiple categories to help GenoPro users find relevant Websites for their genealogy research. The first category is "Searchable Databases", featuring Websites that allow users to look for their ancestors by searching through large databases.

Genealogy Links

Resources by Country

To allow for a geographically-specific use of the resources, the list of links is categorized by countries. You can select your family's country of origin to find information on genealogical data specific to that country. When you submit a Website, indicate if the information contained in the site is specific to a certain country.

Voting System

There is also a voting system to allow everyone to vote on the quality of the Websites. This option provides a classification system for the links. You can vote by clicking on the happy face or the unhappy face. By clicking on the happy face, you will promote the better sites to the top of the list in its specific category. With a user-defined classification system, the better sites will be promoted through a democratic process.

Voting for excellent Websites will also give you the advantage of creating quick bookmarks for your best references. All the Websites who received a favorable vote on your part will be placed in your Favorites.
