I wrote before about Mocavo and called it "a genealogy search engine." Now the company has added new functionality and my earlier description is no longer accurate. To be sure, Mocavo still functions well as a genealogy search engine but now I think I need to describe Mocavo as "a genealogy search and matching service."
The following is the announcement from Mocavo:
We're excited to announce the coming availability of two major new features on Mocavo.com.
1) You can now upload your family tree to Mocavo and we'll send you search results for your ancestors. This will save you the time and effort of having to search for each of your ancestors manually. You can upload your tree now, in GEDCOM format, and then within a couple of weeks you'll receive a weekly or daily email (your choice) pointing you to search results for your ancestors. We think this will be a magical experience as you repeatedly find interesting content about your ancestors as we discover new material all over the Web.
2) When uploading your family tree, you can optionally have it included in the Mocavo search engine, which will allow other Mocavo users to find your content in their search results. We'll prominently display you as the creator and owner of your family tree whenever anyone finds it. We'll automatically remove living persons in your tree from the search results and you can delete your tree at any time.
We're celebrating the launch of these two new features on July 15th by giving away an iPad 2. Visit http://www.mocavo.com/upload to upload your GEDCOM file. On July 15th, we'll select one lucky winner from among those who uploaded their family tree and send them a brand new iPad 2. (No purchase necessary. Winner decided by random drawing.)
