I have written a number of times about Mocavo, the genealogy search engine. My past articles may be found by starting at http://goo.gl/MtdPs. Mocavo has now announced it has raised $4 million in its first round of funding in a bid to help people find their ancestors through its search engine.
This morning, Mocavo COO Ryan Hunter wrote on the Mocavo blog:
Today, we are very excited to announce that we have finalized our Series A round of funding with an investment from Foundry Group. Along with this funding, our team welcomes the Foundry Group Managing Director, Seth Levine, to the Mocavo board of directors. We're very excited about our future with the support that Seth and Foundry bring to the company.
Since our launch in March 2011, we have focused on creating the most engaging and social experience in the research of family history. We've already created a custom search engine focused in genealogy, an automated system to send undiscovered content to users, and mobile/web apps to self-publish documents and photos. We've had a great first year, and we're excited that Foundry shares our passion and vision on the direction of the industry.
