Jean-Yves Baxter launched the French version of the GeneaSofts website in September 2005 and it immediately became very popular amongst French-speaking genealogists. He has now expanded the site by supplying English language articles that seem to mirror the French articles.
GeneaSofts is a blog-format web site that gives daily news about genealogy software, web-based user interfaces and other genealogy technology news. The English version has been in operation for a few months but M. Baxter did not announce it until now as he was still making the site perfect.
I was pleased to note that GeneaSofts has an RSS feed. You can add that feed to your favorite RSS viewer and easily keep up to date with all the latest articles without directly visiting the web site each time in a web browser.
M. Baxter seems to have excellent credentials for this site. He is a long-time genealogist, a software developer and a regular author for La Revue Française de Généalogie, the #1 genealogy magazine in France. He has been in charge of the Anglo-Saxon partnerships for GeneaNet, free collaborative database since 1996.
Geneasofts is a part of GeneaNet, an online service that has been mentioned in this newsletter a number of times. You can read those past articles at http://tinyurl.com/2xl3ez.
