Why share your genealogy on WeRelate.org?

I am considering adding this tool to my genealogy toolbox. This seems like a good way to collaborate on dead-end relatives with multiple researchers. It also looks like a good place to gather stories of a common ancestor from descendants with different perspectives and traditions.

These two uses are clearly not the only ways in which this site/tool could prove useful, but these are the ways I am thinking of using it right now. I encourage you to have a look at werelate.org, and let me know what you think of using this tool for genealogical collaboration and sharing.

About glamberson

I am an amateur genealogist and a professional technologist, having experience in both areas that goes back to the 1980s (at least). My genealogical interests really began in 1979 when my grandfather died. Computers & technology have been primary interests since the early 1980s. My first personal computer was an Apple IIe bought shortly after they first became available.

    This sounds like a good place to leave a file as “cousin bait”!
