Welcome to the fifth edition of the GenoPro Newsletter. If you missed our previous newsletters they are available online.
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.
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.
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.
All links titles, descriptions and categories can be modified by anyone. Should you want to add information or make a change, click on the Edit Link and correct or complete the description of genealogy related Websites of your choice.
As a contributor, you may also choose to leave a comment or to provide extra information for each links. Include all information that you believe could be of use to your fellow users.
You can submit a link to the database by filling out a simple online form.
Guideline: Please only submit genealogy related sites that contain original content. For Internet portals, or pages that only have links to other sites, please submit all the sites individually.
