The personal computer has become one of humanity's common threads, saving and storing all of our current pertinent information, while genealogy is our never-wavering link to the past. One man who works in both of these past and present mediums is Stephen Morse.
Stephen has created more than 130 Web sites dedicated to making it easier to access genealogical records. The first site he created was a new database for sifting through the imperfect Ellis Island immigration records.
When Morse made his initial Web site accessible to the general public, family historians and scholarly genealogists from around the globe instantly became smitten with his one-step research platform. In 2003, Morse was named the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies' Outstanding Contributor to Jewish Genealogy.
