On March 27, I published a press release written by WeRelate.org and the Allen County Public Library. The two announced a new relationship to place genealogical information online. Now an editor's article in the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel adds comments from what appears to be an insider's viewpoint. The author describes the updated WeRelate.org web site as "likely to become the best site available."
The article states:
WeRelate certainly isn't the first online genealogy site. Genealogists exploited the Internet early in its 1990s boom for transferring information and posting family trees and other research material online. But using the Wikipedia model will allow many more people to compile information much more smoothly.
And the fact that professional genealogists from the library, along with the Foundation for On-Line Genealogy, a Utah nonprofit, are guiding the development of WeRelate makes it likely to become the best site available.
